The forester who studies the lower South is impressed by the marvelous productivity of much of its wide-spreading forest lands, by the abundance of logging and wood-using activities on every side, and by the contrasts from one locality to the next in forest conditions and the evidences of forest management. He may well have the urge, as many hundred foresters before him have had, to go to work in this land of pine and hardwood where forestry opportunity is so attractive, problems so varied, and progress so rapid.
