Why the Cooperative Forest Restoration Bill Should Not Pass
Abstract:Interest among foresters in the Cooperative Forest Restoration Bill is definitely increasing. Many foresters believe the bill has much merit; others believe that it will have a profoundly detrimental influence on the progress of public and private forestry in the United States. Most of the discussions that have so far appeared have directly, or at least tacitly, endorsed the objectives and provisions of the bill. Because the editor-in-chief believes that the Journal has a definite responsibility to the Society to present both sides of all important issues, he is most happy to publish Professor Chapman's article. Professor Chapman's objections to the bill are clear cut and leave little doubt concerning his opinion of its provisions.
