It is a common thought with us, that in the Old World, governments do everything, - and what these governments do for forestry is a common theme with our forest associations. But individuals and societies work in forestry also. The forests of Solagne, that were destroyed by the severe winter of 1879-80, have been replaced through the efforts of the Agricultural Society of France. In five years many thousands of acres have been replanted. Pinus maritima is the kind selected for the work.
