Twenty-five years ago the public was anxious lest the timber supply be inadequate to meet its demands for forest products. Today its concern is directed toward the forest industries themselves as profitable enterprises. This transition reflects the economic problems and conditions that have been accumulating in the natural resource industries generally. The author, by training and long experience particularly competent to discuss the problems besetting the lumber industry and their amelioration, gives here a commendably frank and impartial analysis and criticism, and a suggestion for a course of constructive action which should greatly improve the economic position of the forest industries.
