The forests also attracted tourists and were thus of aesthetic and economic value.
Despite the replacement of forest by agriculture the forest area was being increased by the afforestation of waste lands. The reclamation of waste lands principally for afforestation needed active promotion, although cost had to be considered. Management had to be based on production. Grading and volume measurement of felled timber, culture of Canadian poplar, and the sale of different timbers needed more attention.
