Growing trees is the business of the forester; timber conversion is the business of the lumberman. There is apparently not enough money in saw-milling in the Lake States region to attract the larger sawmill operators to consider sustained forest yield; the pulpmill operators do consider it seriously. The project of commercial timber growing, upon which the author and his associates is engaged, for the production of the forest products for the open market is suggestive of possibilities for other foresters.
The Journal of Forestry is the most widely circulated scholarly forestry journal in the world. In print since 1902, the Journal has received several national awards for excellence. The mission of the Journal of Forestry is to advance the profession of forestry by keeping forest management professionals informed about significant developments and ideas in the many facets of forestry: economics, education and communication, entomology and pathology, fire, forest ecology, geospatial technologies, history, international forestry, measurements, policy, recreation, silviculture, social sciences, soils and hydrology, urban and community forestry, utilization and engineering, and wildlife management. The Journal is published bimonthly: January, March, May, July, September, and November.
