Sawlogs produced from Indiana farmwoods provide an important part of the cash income of many farmers. These same sawlogs likewise yield a profit to the mill man who converts them into lumber. There is some merchantable sawtimber on 50,000 farms in the state of Indiana and the operating sawmills in the state number around 1,000. Thus is evident the need for information concerning the volume and value of sawlogs, the primary product of the farmwoods and the sole source material of the lumber manufacturer. One aim of the publication is to further the mutual understanding of the farmer-producer and the manufacturer-consumer of sawlogs, through the presentation of unbiased facts concerning the quantity and quality of lumber which can be produced from various kinds of sawlogs.
