Most foresters have a pretty good idea of the forestry problems in the state in which they reside. Information concerning the forestry problems in other states, though quite readily available, is too little read outside of the state to which it applies. Despite the fact that California seems to hold first place in many things, it does not seem to hold first place in state forestry. The author of the following paper has been state forester of California for many years and no one, perhaps, knows better than he knows, the difficulties and possibilities of developing a state forestry program. Following Mr. Pratt's article will be found Mr. C. R. Tillotson's comments of Mr. Pratt's paper. Both papers will be found to be of interest and they show that California is confronted with many of the same problems that have long confronted the eastern states.
