The author's answer to the question that serves as a title to this article is that foresters themselves should define forestry in terms sufficiently broad to embrace all activities which they are competent to handle effectively. These would include the production from forests and associated wild lands of whatever they can yield for the service of man. Failure to define and to practice forestry in a sufficiently comprehensive way is unduly narrowing the scope of the profession, to the detriment both of foresters themselves and of the general public.
