The Farm Woodlot, 1969

I found this old publication in a file folder I was cleaning out.  From almost 50 years ago, it throws some interesting light on priorities back then which have since been largely lost.  I live on a hundred acres of forest and field and heat with wood.  Over the 30 years I've been out here, I've seen more land sacrificed to subdivisions and starter castles.  The people who build the latter almost never seem to plant trees.  I wish sometimes I could put a dome over my property and keep all of the air that my trees generate, and leave the McMansion owners to wheeze on the air generated by their ridiculously over-sized lawns.
