Abstract:Forestry should be guided by economic considerations. The policy-making efforts of the past two years have brought home the basic need of a solid groundwork of economic knowledge. By discussing various factors basic to forestry practice and describing the several important economic studies recently undertaken by the U. S. Forest Service, the author makes a strong case for forest economics as a distinct field for professional effort. At the same time is indicated the specialized type of training, interest and aptitude required of men engaged in this work.
