American forestry, as a profession, is thirty years old. Its progress, accomplishments and influence upon national life are an American epic. A whole historic epoch has been crowded into thirty years. Through its leaders, apathy toward conservation has changed to interest and support. The author, one of the charter members of the Society, gives in a scholarly address a refreshing account of the development of forestry and the forestry profession. Likewise, he gives a thought-provoking admonition to the American people to take stock of their plans for the future in forestry and other national matters. We need a new faith in our own destiny more than a new freedom.
