The author holds that expansion of the federal government's policy of National Forest acquisition is a wasteful subsidy which has resulted in unjustifiable investments; and nses the White Mountain National Forest as an example to develop his thesis. He proposes, instead, that federal funds be used to subsidize blanket protection of forest lands, regardless of ownership. In rebuttal, Philip W. Ayres defends the federal acquisition policy. He maintains that, providing all returns--financial, social, and physical appreciation of the property--are considered, the White Mountain National Forest has been self-supporting.
