"Other films dealing with special phases of Canada's economic and social life are progressing along with the war program. Timber Front and Mining Front represent the first two of 'a series drawing attention to public responsibility in the operation and conservation of the country's natural resources.' They are directed to non-theatrical audiences among adult education groups."

"This film gives an account of the importance of Canada's forests in the national war effort and stresses also the vital part they will play in the reconstructive social planning which will follow. The reckless exploitation of forests in bygone days is contrasted with the care and foresight devoted to the woodlands today, and every citizen is shown how he can assist in the conservation of those forest resources which form so great a part of Canada's wealth."
