During the past thirty years Sweden has made great progress in developing a rational program of forest management. The state and county organizations and the legislation which made these organizations possible are described. Although there is little likelihood that county forest boards would be successful generally in the United States at the present time, it does not follow that there is no place for a somewhat similar type of board in this country. Mr. Lobdell's article will be found to be of great interest at the moment because of our far greater faith in the efficacy of national than in state forest legislation.
