Pennsylvania has frequently been called the cradle of American forestry. As might be expected, considerable time is required for even a keen and practiced observer to inspect all the state's various woods operations. But it is not necessary to travel the length and breadth of the commonwealth in order to study Pennsylvania forestry at first hand; the same end may be reached by a visit to the well known Mont Alto State Forest. Although only a single, comparatively small administrative unit of the state Forest Service, this area affords a clear cross section of the history, the physical background, the present character, and the trend of forestry in Penn's woods.
