mm mm Tree Farmer Cuts Timber Though Blind MOSCOW. Idaho - (NEA) — A sharp double-edged axe,, swung by a blind man, helps boost the nation's forest production.

In fact he wields his axe through 55 acres of tall timber. The Moscow, Idaho, farmer is one of many throughout the court try who is growing wood as a crop. Sponsored by the American Forest Products Industries, Inc., this private tree growing program helps increase valuable United States timber. Since felling a huge tree requires as much surgical precision as brute strength, fnost woodsmen ! swing so the tree won't smash \ inferior trees for firewood.
