In dealing with the destructive lumbering of private forests, the American forestry movement has lacked the boldness and realism with which it saved the public forests. With a final attack on the "let-alone" policy, the author asserts that the real obstacle to preventing destructive lumbering is uot its inherent impossibility but failure to work out sound principles of control that can be implemented in practice. He therefore suggests a set of priuciples designed to overcome the constitutional, administrative, and human obstacles to public control, as the final step toward making silviculture possible.
