THE progress of the afforestation work being carried out by the Forestry Commission in Great Britain for the year ending September 30, 1935, is detailed in the sixteenth annual report (London: H.M. Stationery Office, 1936). During the year, the programme of work was that laid down by Government at the time of the financial crisis of 1931. In January 1935, the Commissioners reported to Government that it was desirable to review the position generally and to extend the current five-year programme, so that the work might be organized to the best advantage.
