Abstract:Forestry endeavor of the past has largely been absorbed in initiating new enterprises, changing individual and public attitudes, acquiring knowledge and experience, and removing obstacles, economic and otherwise. It has made extraordinary progress. Foresters now have broader conceptions of their functions and responsibilities and their activities comprehend a much larger field than formerly. In looking ahead the author, a pioneer and still a leader in forestry thought and practice, predicts a material expansion of public forestry forced by the problems of the conservation of waters, the tremendous sweep of the recreation movement, improved fire protection, and the present wasteful liquidation of a basic natural resource. Both in public and private forestry there will be an increasingly exacting demand upon the profession for technical knowledge and proficiency. His paper is a philosophical survey of the past and a searching estimate of the future.
