Mr. Hardtner is generally regarded among foresters and lumberman as the father of large scale forestry in the South. Believing in the desirability of reforesting cut-over lands from the start he set out to apply the methods he learned from personal observation in his own forest, later taking advantage of the suggestions of visiting technical foresters. Today the names of Hardtner and Urania are synonymous of successful commercial reforestation. The Urania forest is annually the objective of many foresters visiting in the South. Mr. Hardtner is also the father of the present Louisiana severance tax law.
