Forest Industry Spreads Dangerous Assumptions on Annual Growth
Abstract:The author believes that the Society of American Foresters has a public responsibility to expose misrepresentation in current forest industry publicity, which discounts forest depletion and implies that the growth outlook is satisfactory. This article deals with pertinent facts on forest depletion, adequacy of growing stock, and growth. An evaluation of changes in annual growth since 1938 is attempted and the necessity for better management to maintain forest productivity is emphasized.
