The extensive utilization and planting operations, fostered by the Delaware and Hudson Company in the Adirondack Mountain region since 1903, represents one of the largest forest management projects of its kind. It resulted from early forestry publicity, under plans made and directed by foresters. The author shows what a commercial organization can accomplish in the face of many difficulties and gives an interesting bit of early history of timber utilization in an old region. Mr. Sterling also finds serious doubts by the owners as to whether the project will pay; yet, herein lies the business foundation of forestry.
