Civritiurit station will soon be c
laMMicd in a iuidiIht of the National
Foret htiiu- of th Vcl according
to pliiiH which have jut Wen om
olctrd' by the United State Forest
Service. These new (atioii arc e

prriiuont Million hat already bent e
I;ili1iticd on the Coconino National
Forot in the Stitli-rt. with head
quarter at I'laiftnfT, Arizona. Sta
tion in other National Forest will
be entablithed later, and it is the in
tention ultimately to have nt least
one experiment Mation in each of the
nil vicult lira! region of the Wcit.
One of the mont important parts of
the work of the new experiment Ma
tions will be the maintenance of mo
del forest typical of the region.
These area will furnish the limit val
uable and instructive object lessons
for ihe public in general, for profes-
- sional foresters, lumbermen, and own
er of forest land, and especially to
the technical and administrative of
ficers of the National Forests.
In the recently established , station
on the Coconino National Forest one
of the first problems to be taken up
will be the study of the reproduction
of western yellow pine and the couses
of its Mtcccs and failure. A solution
of this problem of how to obtain sat
isfactory reproduction of t lie yellow
pine is of the greatest practical im
prtauce to the South-west, since the
jellow pine, which is by far the most
valuable tree there is in. many cases
not foriniiig a satisfactory second
growth. The study will be carried on
largely by means of sample plots,
which will be laid out for future ob
servation to determine the effects of
graxmKi of the different methods of
cmiiiiK and disposing of the brush,
and other factors on the success of
t;licr studies which will be taken
up soon are a study of the light re
quirements (jf different species at dif
ferent altitudes and the construction
of a scale of tolerance which will be
based on the actual measurements of
the light intensity, and not only, as
has hitherto been the case, on gener-
0 HI U
al observations alone; the taking of
meteorological observations to deter
mine the effect of the forest upoi'
temperature, humidity, melting of
snow, wind velocity, etc.! a study of
the relative value of the germinating
power of seeds from trees of differ
ent si.es, ages, and degrees of health;
and similar studies of value to the re
gion. A complete collection of fhe
flora of the forest will be made to
form a herbarium, which will be kept
on the forest and will be available for
reference at any time.
The stations will carry on scientific
experiments and studies which will
lead to a full and exact knowledge of
American silviculture, and the indi
rect benefits of the forests will deal
particularly with those problems of
particular inportance to the regions
in which they are located.
While work of this character is new
in this country, it is not without pre
cedent abroad. The value of the sys
tematic organization for forest re
search work was officially recognized
in Germany in WO, when th fir-t
West experiment, statio,. was estab
lished in D.'Hcn, in connection with
the Tolytccknikum at Carlsruhe. Half
a dozen of the German states follow
ed the example, instituting main ex
periment stations in connection with
. forest schools, and branches in var
ious forest districts. The work dmie
is intensely scientific, and the policy
of forest experiment stations is stead
ily growing in favor, , , - r
J ii India, where after half a cen
tury of administration the state of
the forest is hardly better than in the
United States at present, the work at
research has been almost wholly ne
glected, and the result Is apparent in
the poor progresj of technical forest
ry. Very lately, however, the need,
has been recognized by the govern
nit'iit, and an Imperial Forest Re
serve Institute and College has been
created at Dt-linra I'un, with a facul
ty chosen from the Imperial Foret
In the United State considerable
research work has already been done
in connection with forest problems,
but the chief trouble so far ha been
the lack of pcrsistance and perm'"
nence which has characterized the
work, and failure frequently to con
sider all the factor which arc involv
ed. The new system provides for the
permanent assignment in a given re
gion of specially trained men who
will have an opportunity to become
thoroughly familiar with their region,
and the work will tliun be conducted
with the greatest effectiveness and
The work will be not only scientific
in character, but will also be ex
tremely practical, and will aim in
every case .i solve problems of most
importance to the lumberman , the
orester, and the people a a whole.
Valuable results will undoubtedly be
obtained in this way which were not
