Abstract:The author, while an officer in the U. S. Forest Service, conducted a sort of one-man poll of public opinion on Forest Service policies among the backhills people of the Southern Appalachian Mountains. His findings may or may not be representative of the viewpoint of all the back-mountain people throughout the region, but as samples of public opinion they should be of interest, not alone to U. S. Forest Service personnel, but to foresters in state and private employment as well. His study shows the importance of good public relations policies in the successful administration of publicly owned forests, and indicates several ways whereby the public relations effort can be strengthened.
