In September 1955, The America, Forestry Association was 80 years old. It is therefore the oldest group in North America organized to promote forest conservation. Its record of leadership, beginning when it was unique in the field of citizens' organizations and continuing to the present when there are many groups of both general and special interests, parallels the history of American forestry. In recognition of the untiring efforts and substantial achievements of A.F.A. in the promotion of forest policy and practice, we requested Dean Dana to contribute the following history of its activities to our professional literature.
