It is rather difficult in the forestry profession of this country to consider recreation as anything but a commercial problem financed by companies or individuals and entirely outside the jurisdiction of the Federal Government. It is painfully difficult for some of the profession to even consider it among the more seemingly important factors pertaining to the science of Forestry. That anything relative to recreation should be considered on a par with other forestry matters that have been held in the limelight for so long is almost inconceivable.
