Forest Management by Potlatch Forests, Inc., with Special Reference to Clearwater County, Idaho
Abstract:The Editor-in-Chief is delighted to be able to present to the readers of the JOURNAL OF FORESTRY the following symposium on "Forest Management" by Potlatch Forests, Incorporated, prepared by four of the company's foresters. Potlatch Forests, Incorporated, employs from 20 to 30 professionally trained foresters, many of whom hold responsible administrative or managerial positions in the company. Readers of the symposium will be impressed by the practical "dirt forestry" attitudes of the authors; by their keen recognition of their responsibilities to the state and to the community; and by their confidence, even under difficult conditions, that private sustained yield forestry is practical and profitable. The achievements of Potlatch Forests, Incorporated, during the past 14 years are indicative of what can be done by faith in an idea and an ideal. The symposium consists of 4 parts: Prospects and Policies, by C. L. Billings; Cutting Practices, by E. C. Rettig; Slash Disposal, by John T. Baggs; and The Road Ahead, by E. F. Rapraeger.
