A great timber-felling campaign is now in progress, and rich returns are falling to South aJid Mid-Wales land- owners who were wise enough to set up good plantations thirty years ago or more. Only recently a belt on Lord I Tredegar's Monmouthshire estate fetched nearly £ 11,000, and there are reoords of equally successful deals in other parts of the Principality. The yield now being felled in British woods is estimated to be worth well over £ 20,000,000. Single oaks have realised as much as LIOO, and spialler timber fetches anything i from two to seven shillings a cubic foot. A good deal of the yield is, of course, coming to the mining valleys for pitwood.
