HOMESTEADóWOOD ONóHas a man who takes up a U. S. homestead claim a right to sell the wood which he clears off the land or must he use it himself?
If he is really clearing the land for agricultural purposes and at once makes such use of it, he is allowed to sell any surplus wood or timber cut off while clearing, hut must only sell what he does not need. This is usually watched closely, for many people would take up a claim that had considerable timber on it, sell the timber and abandon the claim. However, it is difficult to make a law that will pre vent this without robbing the real settler of his right to sell the surplus wood and timber, so the law is made that way and only requires proof that the timber is being disposed of to prevent waste, and was removed in actual clearing.
