From Bolls to Boles

From Bolls to Boles Abstract: Tree boles have replaced cotton bolls as the principal products of vast rural areas in the South. Between 1949 and 2007 the acreage of cotton, tobacco, and peanuts declined dramatically. Fewer farms grew these crops, but their per acre productivity increased so greatly that they outpaced the demand for them, and much land that once produced them has become redundant. The forestlands that have superseded crops on redundant cropland provide a raw material base for the nation’s leading wood fiber producing region. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Southeastern Geographer University of North Carolina Press
