Ames Forester


Clear, straight-grained, merchantable pine lumber produced in fifteen years; burl walnut, bird’s-eye maple, curly birch grown without difficulty wherever and whenever desired; pinon pine seeds of a size to be readily marketable in competition with other nuts developed; pines with doubled and trebled yields of heptanes, terpenes, oleoresins, and pitch isolated; high grade pulpwoods grown in an eight year rotation. This isn’t Paul Bunyan’s Utopia; these are merely some of the practical possibilities which may be anticipated if genetics, the science of plant breeding, is applied to forestry.
