This is a most timely paper. "Selective logging" as a term is common now among lumbermen and foresters. But what does it mean? To one group it connotes merely economic selection of areas, trees and logs from the financial angle; to another it includes the silvicultural aspects and places them above the economic. Mr. Ames discusses some of the interpretations placed npon the term, enlarging upon the logging engineers' idea of selection and debating its adaptability to sales of national forest timber.
