A concerted effort is to be made during the coming year to bring into use all of the remaining unused ranges in the national forests under the jurisdiction of the Denver office of the forest reserve. The forestry department seeks to utilize all of the accessible forage resources as far as possible consistent with the interests of timber and water conservation, and the permanent use of the ranges themselves. In consequence, practically all of the accessible areas within the natinal forests of Colorado, Wyoming, and South Dakota are now annually allotted to the live-stock industry.
