For every five acres of farm land being abandoned each year in the Northeast only one is being reforested. Assuming that a large part of such idle land should be returned to forest through planting, the progress now being made is not satisfactory. The diversity of practices in the several states of the region indicates uncertainty as to the best course to pursue. More adequate knowledge of planting principles and methods and of possibilities of reducing costs would go far to stimulate additional planting and assure success to reforestation already under way. The author discusses the enormity of the job and the problems that require immediate study.
