Logging and silviculture must go hand in hand if perpetual forest production is to be achieved. The logger must exercise more control over the movement of legs from the stump through reserve timber and reproduction, while the forester must understand logging and the factors influencing costs. The authors, experienced in supervising cutting on government lands, describe their method oi planning settings to obtain protection oi reproduction without undue log costs. They show how planning of settings is primarily a problem in good forest management.
