Because there has been considerable controversy over the level of government best suited to administer controls over private forest cutting the author has attempted to resolve the question from experience in other legislative fields. The development of federal-state-local government relationships in these fields has been used as a basis for formulating a suggested framework for public forest regulation. Somewhat more detailed suggestions for handling regulatory activities at the state level are set forth as a guide to future efforts in this field as well as a possible measure of the adequacy of those in existence at present.
