Abstract:The forestry problem is not so much a problem of the forests as of the owners and the public toward them. The present unsatisfactory condition of the forests results largely from lack of economic incentive to practice forestry. The author believes that education is the national remedy but that the problem is too complicated to be reduced to any one economic or silvicultural formula. He thinks the remedial measures should represent correlated action by public and private agencies, with the public burden centered ou lands of low productivity and long deferred returns.
