Abstract
  • Progress in State forestry has been stimulated by Federal assistance since 1924 when Congress passed the Clarke-McNary Act authoriz­ing cooperation with the States in forest-fire control measures with a view to the protection of forest and water resources and to the continuous production of timber on lands chiefly suitable for the purpose. Under this cooperative program definite forest-land policies and action programs have been initiated. Protection of forests from fires and rehabilitation of devastated areas are needed to insure the social and economic stability of forest communities and workers. The possibilities of State forests as administrative centers in a broad conservation program on private lands have been demonstrated. The effectiveness of the field organ­izations is measured, however, largely by the available equipment and funds. Much remains to be done to improve present methods and to extend operations to cover areas as yet unprotected. The future livelihood of many communities is dependent upon the speed with which the forest-conservation program can be ex­panded. The one-third of our continental area classified as forest land must be protected and so managed that it will support its fair share of the population. State ownership and supervision of certain forest lands are now definitely recognized as means to this end. Additional millions of acres of tax-delinquent and devastated lands must eventually be brought under State or Federal custodian­ship. Consolidation of much of this land in additional State­owned forests will facilitate expansion of organized fire protection to all forest lands.
