To accomplish the dual purpose of restoring productivity to California's cutover lands and absorbing some of the shock of post-wax unemployment, the author urges a system of state forests created by purchasing one million of California's five million acres of cutover land. First presented by him to the State Board of Forestry in October, 1941, and given its approval, the proposal has met with general favor and a bill to provide initial appropriations is now before the legislature. In this paper the author justifies and describes the proposed program.
