Who Shall Regulate Our Forests?
Abstract:The principle of public regulation of private forest management has gained wide acceptance within recent years. The issue is not that public regulation is necessary or desirable in certain states and local situations. Rather the issue is whether regulation shall be undertaken by the federal government, the states, or by joint federal-state cooperation. The following paper represents the viewpoint of a professionally trained state forester of a state that recently enacted a regulatory law. He discusses what the Oregon law is designed to accomplish, and describes how it works.
