There are conflicting views of the value of this wood. It has been stated in these columns that it is not even fit for fuel; but we like to give all sides of every question as long as there is any uncertainty, and the following from a California paper shows the wood to some advantage: "An Anaheim farmer has cut three hundred cords of wood off a six-acre grove of gum trees six years old. He sells the wood at $8 a cord, making the gross profits #2,400, or $66.66 per acre for each year since the trees were planted".
