Many a good idea in forestry is still-born because of the general reluctance to put it on paper until several years of trial and study have shown it to be "practical." The criterion of practicality, however, is too often taken to be the ability of the reader to see immediately the application to his own situation. It is with this thought in mind that the idea of induced flowering as a tool in mass selection and forest management is presented to stimulate discussion, despite the numerous difficulties foreseeable in its application. Although the authors have done little more than think about its possibilities, induced flowering seems to merit study and experimentation.
