Farming practices change and what agriculture once produced naturally for our great satisfaction such as country lanes, landscapes, traditional buildings and so forth is no longer produced. Hedgerows and embankments are essential features of many country landscapes to which the French feel an attachment. Previously farmers would spend long days clearing out ditches and preparing for winter by cutting wood from the hedges, which by the same token were carefully tended. Some of these hedgerows have been ripped out today because they were in the way of farmers looking to work larger plots of land and needing wider lanes.

The challenge sometimes lies elsewhere, in changing sector-specific policies. Whether it is policies on farming, fisheries, tourism, infrastructures or forestry, all may have a far greater impact on rural amenities than the policies specifically designed to conserve these amenities.

This said, we recognize the significant investment of public resources in management of public lands and the scarceness, or scarcity, of the natural resources they contain. Historically, forested lands were converted to agricultural production which experienced a checkered history in the Northwoods. Given marginal soil fertility levels and shorter growing seasons, many of these northern farms were unsuccessful and reverted back to forests. Interestingly, these more productive sites made up the bulk of tax reverted lands during the 1920s and 1930s and now are largely owned and managed by public agencies such as the USDA Forest Service and state/county level units of government.
