With nearly 80 per cent of the acreage of commercial forest land in private ownership, and with but infinitesimal scattered areas of such privately owned land under sustained yield management, many competent observers believe that the next important step in forestry will be congressional authorization of joint public and private effort in the establishment of cooperative sustained yield forest units. The author focuses attention on some of the financial obstacles which at present face the forest industries, and discusses the realities involved in possible governmental participation in, or regulation of, private forest management.
