Forestry Aspects of Land Planning in the Tennessee Valley
Abstract:The past exploitation of the forests of the Tennessee Valley has not contributed sufficiently to the economic betterment of that region. Forest land planning, as an integral part of the Tennessee Valley Authority Act, has for its objective the full development of the forest resource for the benefit of the Vallev's wood-using industries and communities. Since forests occupy over half the area, the opportunity for such planwise utilization is promising. The significance of forestry in the Tennessee Valley, the character of the forest resource, and the possibilities for permanent forest management are included in the forestry division's program as part of the regional program of the Tennessee Valley Authority.
