Abstract

Probably one of the most important problems which Iowa is facing today relates to adjustments in land use. For many years, conservationists have anticipated the time when a real start would be made in the public acquisition of forest lands which are not best adapted to agricultural use. Apparently this time arrived when the National Forest Reservations commission approved, on January 21, 1935, purchase units with a gross area of 829,000 acres for national forests in Iowa.
