The Forest Reserves

Saturday Evening Post

There are nearly 50,000,000 acres of national forest reserves in this country, and for their conservative management. Uncle Sam's Forest Bureau is making working plans. The states are taking a most active interest in the matter, especially New York, in whose behalf the Bureau is preparing working plans for about 1,250,000 acres. In addition, the Bureau has applications for similar working plans for 2,500,000 acres belonging to private owners.

From 20,000,000 to 40,000,000 acres of government forest in the Philippines require attention, and the office in charge of forestry work at Manila, under Captain Ahearn, of the Ninth Infantry, is anxious to obtain the services of competent experts in this line.
