This excellent article by a Swiss correspondent has been inspired by the reading of American literature depicting reforestation methods in this country, and is offered in a helpful spirit. Although many articles and items regarding the importance of seed source have appeared in the JOURNAL in recent years, it is a subject to which we, in a practical sense, have given all too little consideration. The present article brings home the lesson in a more definite way than do most of the brief items from foreign journals. The author is an honorary member of the Society of American Foresters. Thanks are due to Paul Rudolf of the Lake States Forest Experiment Station for the translation from the German of Dr. Fankhauser.
