Late in 1946, the U.S. Forest Service made a hundred-year contract with the Simpson Logging Company. It provided unified management for 270,000 acres of federal and private woodlands in the South Olympics in the State of Washington. The proposal was praised at the time as a far-sighted use of public resources to spread out sustained yield forest practices and stabilize lumber-born communities. There were also some who criticised, saying that the deal created monopoly since one concern would be given first call on a rast area of the people's timber, without competition. The Forest Service leaders faced their critics with the courage of conviction that wrote Public Law 273 in 1944; and thus was launched one of the most intriguing try-outs of cooperative forestry ever undertaken in the world. What results from this bold venture can be seen today, at the end of the first four years in the hundred?
