Informed foresters recognize that an immense job lies ahead to bring good forest practice to all private forest lands, particularly the 261 million acres held in ownerships of less than 5,000 acres. Mr. McArdle outlines a program proposed by the U. S. Forest Service to expand greatly the services to be provided owners and operators of private timberland. The proposal calls for a cooperative approach on the Clark-McNary pattern with the state and federal governments both providing aids. It is estimated that the new program will require approximately 2,500 foresters to place in operation.
