Ames Forester


The problems which have confronted the administrative officers of the Ozark National Forest have been numerous and varied. In the handling of most of them definite policies have been followed and results have been very satisfactory. The fire situation is well in hand. The erection of numerous observation towers, well located, and the conviction of some of the chief offenders have had a very decided effect in descreasing the acreage burned over each year. The settlement of claims cases; the administration of the Forest Homestead act; free use; special use; and other problems, which on Western Forests are simply routine, because of the peculiar nature of the people living within the boundaries of the Ozarks National Forest, require a high degree of tact and skill.
