One of the most important problems of economic forestry is the determination of the mean annual or periodic growth of stands and forests. A simple, cheap, and relatively accurate method of determining the periodic growth of the forest is described in this paper. Known as the "méthode du contrôle," it is being applied in Switzerland and in certain parts of France, and has recently been introduced in Prussia. It is here presented for consideration with reference to its possible usefulness both in research and in silvicultural practice in the United States.
