$29.50 plus tax (Refund Policy)


The author offers a solution of the forest land problem predicated on the opinion that the American people are not now ready for public regulation of private forests. He believes his remedies will induce many private owners to practice forestry and to sponsor other measures to force recalcitrants to do likewise. He offers, extension of National Forests; limitation of public timber sales to cases of urgency; expansion of federal marketing facilities; creation of forest land banks for issuing loans on sustained yield operations; creation of national and state forestry boards; increase of state protective effort and enlargement of extension activities to assure interpretation, dissemination, and adoption of forestry knowledge.
