Extending Public Control and Management of Forest Land Without Purchase

$29.50 plus tax (Refund Policy)

Buy Article:


A far greater area of forest land needs to be brought under management. Extension of private management proceeds only very slowly and extending public control and management by purchase will run to great expense. The plan herein offered proposes that government purchase control rather than ownership of forest land. Present holders of timberland would continue their ownership but would grant the government an easement permitting it to control and develop the timber. Income from the sale of timber would be shared upon a predetermined basis. Local governments would receive a subsidy in lieu of taxes. Costs of acquiring control are much less than those of obtaining outright possession and the savings to government would, therefore, be considerable.
