The author, formerly editor of the Amercian journal Ecology and a well-known forester records here some observations on English forestry he made during a protracted stay in England. He finds increasing interest in forests for their timber as against cover for game. Planting and protection costs strike an American as extremely high yet they do not appear to deter planting. The government encourages private planting through substantial subsidies and favorable taxation.
