Despite the fact that the author of this paper is in public employ his discussion of private forestry problems is singularly realistic. The fundamental problems confronting private forest landowners in the West and legitimate public measures to alleviate the present situation are discussed in detail. Following Mr. Price's paper will be found Mr. Woodbury's comments, in which his conception of the meaning and objectives of forestry practice, both public and private, are given in a trenchant, incisive manner.
