The author makes an interesting report of the occurrence of white pine in the southern portion of its natural range. Lumbering, fire and insects have materially reduced its distribution and it meets aggressive competition from the southern pines in some localities for occupation of abandoned fields. Its excellent growth rate, however, indicates that the species should have an important place in southern mountain forestry. The author found little real danger from the blister rust or weevils.
