Public Forest Finance in the Light of Growing Stock Conditions
Abstract:In these days of reconstruction when so much thought is being devoted to a better planned social economy, Senate Document No. 12, A National Plan for American Forestry, is a challenge to action in its bold attempt to translate national planning from the realm of theory to that of actual practice in an important and difficult field. No intelligent discussion of public forest finance could have been attempted prior to the assembling of the data presented therein. Whether or not the relatively definite policy advocated in that report is the one which will finally be adopted by the Nation is not of paramount importance. The document makes available the data necessary for the formulation of a number of policies which may serve to meet the situation; and in the following article certain of the facts which have led to the recommendations incorporated in the report are reviewed and alternative proposals for a public forest financial policy suggested.
