We will have the pleasure of listening to a paper on Forestry
by W, L. Floyd, Professor of Horticulture in the University. He
is so well known personally that I do not need to introduce him.
We all appreciate the unselfish work he has done. We have all known
him intimately. His work has always been conservative and pro-
gressive. He is teaching and has taught the course in forestry
offered by the University, for the last several years. It is
hoped that in time this begliming will develop into a school of
freatsy as a part of our University. I hardly need to call your
attention to the appropriateness of the forestry work being con-

nected with the University. Here we have a large body.of students
wno will soon be the leaders in all lines in our State. They will

mould the sentiment and make the laws. If these laws and sentiment

are based on sound economic principles well and good, if based on
false economic principles much harm will be done and our progress

re tard ed.

Lumbering is a manufacturing industry that depends on the
forests for its supply of raw material. If we ruthlessly destroy
this raw material that we have inherited we will have none left for
our children. While we .iay enjoy cheap houses and other luxuries,

those who follow us will have to pay for our extravagance. The State
has a right to conduct its business in such a way as to make a perma-

nent industry. The State should look after its weal th in such a

way as to make it a permanent inheritance. Forests in Florida can

be so handled as to make them a permanent source of employment to

thousands of people and a source of wealth for all time to come.

This cannot be done unless we have a well educated body of men who

understand not only the lumbering business but also the scientific

principles underlying forestry. Where can we begin this work of
education better than at the Uhiversity of rForida? There is

only one 4frestry *o]lege in the South and that is connected with

the University of Georgia. (The Forestry College at Biltmore has

had to close for want of support.)

When we discuss rorest@r we Should keep in mind clearly

that it it not a sentimental matter, but that it is a plain business

proposition. Too frequently we assume that the planting of shade

trees and keeping them healthy sl forestry, but this is only re-
motely connected with forestry. Forest crops ripen at a stage of

development just as do oranges or vegetables and should be marketed

at suchga time as will insure the maximum production.
