In the early days of the national forests the money provided for their protection against fire was sufficient for little more than the employment of a few men. With the greater funds now available it is possible to employ more men and to build roads and trails to make their efforts more effective. The proper location of these routes to give the fire-fighing forces quicker access to any portion of the forest requires careful analysis of the value and location of the resources, as well as the topography and the cost of road building, to make the money yield the greatest service. The authors discuss such an analysis and offer a technique for its preparation.
