the comparison between agriculture

leading. BothI forester and farmer
depcnd upon sun, soil and climate for
the success of his clite ririse. In each
caethe crop is improved both in
duality and quantity by care and ill-
telligent management. There are,
however, differences. TPhe farm ('ropl)
is usually plantedl and( harvested with
in a single year. Hlf a century or
more may elapse between the planting
and harvesting of the forest. A farm-j
er must harvest his corn and wheat
at a certain definite time each year.
Most, of the farm products are more
or less perishable and cannot b~e held1
over long periods without serious
deterioration. Thie forest tree dloes
not needl to be cut at a definite age.
A forest owner may deciide to hold a
given piece of timber beyond the
ripening age in order to await higher
lumnber prices. He(can (10 this and-
su iffer very little in consequence; the
farmer cannot. or he may decide tol
cuit at the ripening age and hold the
lumnber for higher prices. Ilie can
alsio do this, because, when properly
stoired, luniber can be held for con-
siderable tuinn withbout serious odam,
ae. In this way the forest owner
has greater latiitude in his selling
practice than, has the farmer, and can
