A Public Forest Policy
Abstract:Forestry most needs programs of the individual states supplemented by a national program for their co[odiaeresis]rdination. Land use consequences are primarily a matter of state and local concern. Public policy should stimulate self interest in the production of forest products, but it should not subsidize the business of timber growing. In this article, commendable for its clarity, comprehensives and impartiality, the author considers the major phases of the forestry problem and shows what a forestry policy should include. He emphasizes the division of responsibility of federal and state governments.
