The following article gives a vivid picture of the lumberman's point of view and the difficulties and trials encountered in trying to adopt a sound forestry program on a sustained-yield basis. This is a live problem calling for a prompt solution in many parts of the country if sustained-yield management is to be adopted before it is too late. Comments by J. M. Walley and W. S. Bromley of the Milwaukee Office of the Forest Service are attached and further comments on the hypothetical problem presented will be welcomed by the JOURNAL.
