With the increasing demand for pulpwood, lumber, poles, piling, and fence posts, fast-growing Southern pine is fast becoming one of Louisiana's chief farm cash crops.
Thousands of small landowners, as well as large ones, can cash in on this crop by planting idle acres in pine. With the demand for wood increasing every year, the landowner is assured a market for this crop.
According to the Forest Survey of Louisiana in 1955, there were 84.5 percent of Sabine Parish in commercial forest. With this high percentage of commercial forest, the writer feels that steps of preventive measures should be considered in the preservation and conservation of pine trees in Sabine Parish.
Ready markets for pine logs and other pine items exist almost everywhere In the South. From one to a dozen sawmills can be found in nearly every parish. Pulpwood buyers are located in the most-timbered areas. Railroad companies buy ties and a large number of treating plants furnish markets for fence posts, poles, and heavy timbers.
