The outstanding forestry question of today is public regulation of privately owned forests. How rapidly, if at all, such regulation will develop no one can tell at the present moment. In the following article Professor Buttrick reviews some of the backgrounds and problems of pnblic regulation. While he takes no definite stand for or against increased public regulation, some readers may disagree with some of his points of view. Since the purpose of the article is to discuss a controversial matter in a dispassionate way, this is relatively unimportant. It is important, however, that foresters give careful thought and mature consideration to this far-reaching purpose of public regulation of privately owned forests.
