In the Pacific Northwest there are two opposing influences that affect the possibility of forestry practice on private lands. Soil and climatic factors favor a rapid rate of growth and quick recuperation of logged-off lands. Against this is a force for liquidation that, until its power is spent, will defer the stable conditions necessary to permit any general or serious undertaking of long-time forest management. This article contains some plain talk from a man who has had the best opportunities to see both the academic side of forestry and the realities. He reiterates his faith in the ultimate practice of forestry on private lands but has no delusion of its early accomplishment. His reasons are definitely and frankly stated. Mr. Greeley's paper is followed by comments of Mr. D. T. Mason.
