    For over a third of a century exploitation of the western white pine forests of northern Idaho has been based upon the harvesting of virgin timber. In recent years, however, with the end of this ready-made crop definitely in sight, interest in the growing of new timber crops has been increasing. Particularly within the last decade, large public investments, including expenditures for control of the white pine blister rust and for such forest-improvement measures as disposal of defective trees and thinnings have resulted in definite commitments toward growing timber on a long-time basis.
