In this paper, his third upon the subject, the author further analyzes the gaps occurring between actual contributions toward forest protection and those considered of minimum adequacy, and the diversity between federal, state and private contributions in one forest region as compared to another. He discusses the policy that should obtain in the division of financial responsibility between the three agencies and the forces that limit its realization. He believes that the lack of stability of forest protection efforts in many states is due to the lack of the states themselves supplying a sufficient share of the cost. The article offers no direct suggestions to solve the problems but is intended to offer those interested an analysis of the situation as a basis for its consideration and study.
