The practice of private forestry in the United States is far from an accomplished fact. In certain quarters, however, encouraging progress seems to have been made. In the following article Mr. Kevin gives a clear-cut picture of the status of private forestry in the pine region of California. This presentation is detached, judicial, and free from adulation or rancor. Some readers will, no doubt, consider the situation described by Mr. Kevin encouraging; others may consider it discouraging. In any event, it will be found well worth while reading. Following Mr. Kevin's paper will be found a brief discussion of it by Walker B. Tilley of the Western Pine Association. This discussion also will be found to be of interest.
