TUKDAY, MAY 11,1965. IRONWOOD DAILY GLOBE, IRONWOOD, MICHIGAN •IVt HONORED — Charles Super- cynski, instructor in mathematics and physics at Luther L. Wright High School and Oogebic Community . College, recently was informed that he had been chosen by the American Association of Physics teachers to be honored under that organization's teachers' recognition program. Supercynski was cited as a physics teacher of special competence, based on a searching four-hour examination taken by instructors in that field throughout the nation and by recommendations of associates in education. Only 32 teachers in the nation were singled out for that recognition this year. An attractive plaque signifying the honor was presented to Supercynski in the name of the association by Principal James E. Sheridan at a recent Wright High School faculty meeting. Supercynski has been a member of the local staff since his graduation from Superior State University in 1959 and for the past four summers has done intensive study in physics at Purdue University under the National Science Foundation Program.

OPEN AIR CLASSROOM—James Johnson (center, left) formerly of Ironwood, demonstrates a caliper-type tree measuring device during a field trip session at the Continuous Forest Inventory conference at Michigan Tech's Ford Forestry Center. The five-day course included two such field trips. The remainder of the time was spent in the Ford Center's classrooms. Johnson, a forester on the staff of Tech's Ford Forestry Center, is assisted by Richard Smith (in hard hat, back to camera), forester with the Cooperative Forest Inventory Branch, U.S. Forest Service, Milwaukee. On this field trip Johnson took the group to some of the plots used in the first pilot forest inventory project at the Center, pointed out specific trees and reported data on their growth and development since 1938. Increase in Timber's Value Studied by Forest Managers ALBERTA, Michigan — An acre of northern hardwoods timber worth $28 in 1938 is now valued at $229. Why Reasons for this 26 per cent annual increase were studi e d here last week at Michi g a n Technological University's Ford Forestry Center'by 73 industrial forest managers from the United States and Canada. The group attended a conf e r- ence on the applications of modern punch card computing methods and electronic data processing to forest inventory and management control. So unique is the offering it drew enrolle e s from 25 states, including such faraway places as Washingto n, New Hampshire and Florida. Participants observed a "pilot" project developed by Tech research foresters to study an acre of typical Upper Peninsula timber land as it has develo p e d during the last 27 years. Foresters have concentrated on the subject of tree growth by laying out permanent plots in the woods and making periodic measu r e - ments of these trees. From the pilot study, Tech foresters have determined that systematic methods of forest management can mean a steady flow of high value products for local industry, an excellent inve s t ment return for the land owner and resulting good employment in the logging and process i n g industries. Management which does not adequately consider basic principles of careful tree selection can mean the "high-grading" of good, value-producing trees and the tendency of a forest eventually to consist of cull-wood growth, Tech researchers said. The year before the Continuous Forest Inventory (CFI) plots were established at Alberta, the area was harvested by "selective" cutting, one of the earliest attempts to practice scientific forest management in the north country. The 27 years of subsequent growth show developments taking place after this cut. In 1938, 4,750 board feet was left on the acre after cutting. Using price scales of that time, the value of timber on this acre was $28.26, a substantial figure for a stand that had just been cut. Today the volume has grown to 10,340 board feet. Using today's standing-tree values, its worth has increased about eight times to $229.66. Even though a portion of the value increase can be attributed to inflation, benefits resulting from good partial cutting in hardwood forest man- FIRESTONE...CHOICE OF CHAMPIONS Take your choice of Firestone Champions...get the 2nd tire for Buy the first tire it prici listed below,.get the second tire for ONE-HALF THAT PRICEI ALL SIZES Compacts to Big Cars All Tires Mounted FREE LIMITED TIME ONLY Don't Miss Out!

Today there are several hundred thousand acres in Upper Michigan which have been cut on s o m e kind of "selective" basis. The growth in volume and value on this land has certainly been better than on lands which were clear cut at the same time. Although the increase of earnings on Tech's pilot plot wera substantial after 27 years, foresters pointed out that the earning rate could have been considerably greater. Of 62 trees of sawtimber size involved in the analysis, only 12 (19 per cent) contributed to the bulk of the value growth. These 12 added two-thirds of the growth, or double that of the other 50 trees. Implications for the forest manager and landowner are plain, Tech researchers point e d out. By carefully selecting trees of high future potential, managers of northern hardwood forests can anticipate earnings beyond ordinary expectations. To illustrate this point, Tech foresters cited various fact o r s which influenced the earning capacity of the pilot plot: 26 of the trees are "new" trees classed as ingrowth; they were too small to count as sawlogs 27 years ago, but now account for about 20 per cent of the total value increase. During the 27 years, some trees grew as much as six inches in diameter, and the annual rate was 207 board feet, equal to a 4.4 per cent annual volume increase on the original 1938 plot. Thoughihis yearly volu m e growth rate is not particularly outstanding, Tech researchers said it is adequate for an area with a short growing season, such as the Upper Peninsula— expecially in view of the fact t that the quality growth was so good. Quality increase Is another way of saying dollar growth. For these reasons, they said. It : should be apparent to forest managers and land owners that dollar earnings for a forest stand involves an Increase In the value of the timber.Original records of the pilot plot showed a grade for each hardwood tree Twenty- seven years later. It was found that quality and value for che best trees left 27 years ago nad increased substantially Since trees lay on a new; growth of wood annually, they overgrow knots and blemishes which lie near the heart. It Is this increase In quality, as re- fleeted in the present price structure, which commands a premium price for higher grade! hardwoods, and accounts for most of the value increase in these trees. For example, a sugar maple tree 12.3 inches in diameter in 1938 contained only one log with 33 board feet. Its value was 27 cents. Today the same tree is 18.7 inches in diameter, has three logs with 240 board feet and is valued at $7.61. Its value increased over the 27 intervening years is equal to a return on investment in that of almost 100 per cent per year. Since the northern hardw o od hemlock is the most valuab 1 e forest type in Upper Michi g a n and since it occupies the best soils in the area, it is obvious this portion of forest could provide more than its proportionate share of jobs and money to the economy of local communities. Ford Forestry Center staff members point out that-Upper Peninsula residents must turn increasingly to the forest as one of the main sources of economic development in the area. They feel because It Is the most important renewable resource that this resource can, if the lot of the timber grower Is improved, ized 30 Instructors during iti five-day duration.

Results of the Tech pilot study indicate not only the importance of the hardwood sawtimber stands to the economy of t h e Upper Peninsula, but also t h e necessity for proper management of the forest land and for providing other Important incentives which will encourage land owners to engage In forest management as a major endeavor. Foresters and landowners alike must concentrate their efforts in the development and application of better guides to the investment of their forest holdings. Public officials must encourage this effort, the Tech foresters said, by thorough review of taxation practices and by thorough understanding of some of these problems confronting the timberland owner.
