KIRKUS REVIEW

A second volume in the National Problems Series (see Fair and Warmer). This time the subject is conservation of our forests, the significance of trees in our national life, the developments of the U. S. Forest Service. The forest patrol; the uses of wood: the value of trees in preventing erosion, floods, drought; the enemies of trees -- and what the government is doing on all these fronts. Emphasis on the necessity of public education (in which cause this book is a step forward).
