$29.50 plus tax (Refund Policy)


In this address the Chief Forester clarifies and amplifies his views, as set forth at the annual meeting of the Society and reported in the March issue of the Journal, regarding the circumstances that might make desirable government logging from its own lands, and possibly in rare instances small-scale milling operations. Code administration and the federal forest land acquisition policy are also commented upon. Sustained-yield management of the timber-producing forests of the country is the fundamental necessary social objective. Private industrial management should be continued wherever it can render the social services necessary at a cost no greater than that which public operations would impose.
