Excerpt from Thirty-Fourth Annual Program for the Observance of Arbor Day in the Public Schools of Rhode Island, May 8, 1925
The territory included within our National Forests exceeds the combined area of England and Germany. These two countries sustain a population close to ... that of the United States. Germany has splendid forests which she maintains along with sixty million people. To maintain forests along with a dense population is not, however, our present problem. That will be a problem later in our history The present duty of the Forest Service is that of getting ready. Is there any other bureau chief in the world who has in his hands the administration of such a territory? Is there any other bureau chief in the world who is trustee for such wealth, actual and potential? Is there any other bureau chief in the world who should give a clearer accounting of his stewardship? Is there any other bureau chief in the world whom the people whose trustee he is have a better right to watch, examine, and catechise?
