The management of forest lands in the United States, both public and private, during the next two or three decades, will not on the whole be an intensive one. The greater percentage of foresters, either in public or private employ, will during that period be engaged in what we call forest administration. The practice of forestry in America during the immediate future might be likened to the practice of medicine in a country such as India, for example, where the social, religious, political and economic conditions are such as to make the practice of the profession as we know it in the United States, impossible.
