The rapid revision, development, and extension of plans of transportation for California National Forests became a pressing problem with the advent of the emergency program. Accordingly, the work was undertaken as a major regional project. The principles and theories on which the work was based and the general procedure followed are briefly described as they were applied to the pine forests of northern California. Although the major emphasis was placed on the development of transportation systems to meet the fire control problem, the work was regarded as an integral part of comprehensive land-management planning.
