89.015 SOUTHERN MINNESOTA TREE SPECIES, RESEARCH.

Research shall be carried on by the University of Minnesota School of Forestry in cooperation with the Division of Lands and Forestry of the Department of Natural Resources, North Central Forest Experiment Station of the United States Forest Service, individual timber land owners and others directly concerned on such valuable southern Minnesota tree species as basswood, red elm, rock elm, red and white oak, black walnut, black cherry, butternut and green ash to develop means of increasing the contribution of the large acreage of farm woodlands to the agricultural economy. The research effort will be concentrated on such important problems as means of reproducing basswood, development of planting stock, selection of superior strains of these species, methods of field planting, management of existing stands, and methods of increasing the representation of these species in woodlands and forests in need of rehabilitation because of past damage from high-grading, burning, and grazing.
