We are again at war. In our concerted effort to bring it to a successful conclusion, let us not forget the need for initiating measures that will maintain and develop our forest resources on an economically practicable basis. Such measures are not incompatible with the immediate requirements of the Nation for forest products. In fact, now more than ever, economic prerequisites are favorable for the practice of forestry. Future consumer needs for wood, both here and abroad, are considered to justify safeguarding the productivity of our forests. The regulation of cutting practices on private lands, therefore, should be instituted.
