The whole outfit from the man to

It has often brwn said that ns soon as you
can excite a personal interest in the plant
ing of trees tho forestry question will settle
itself. One or the mistakes too frequentlv
made is, however, the encouragement of
the idea that it takes centuries to get trees
large enough for timber purposes.
If proierly planted and properly cared
for, as they ought to be in a well ordered
forest plantation, urowth is extremely rap

within a quarter of a century. Near where
