The Community Forest in the Postwar Period--Report of Committee on Community Forests, Society of American Foresters
Abstract:Community forests should play an important part in our postwar program by providing useful employment on self-liquidating work projects, and by conserving and developing the forest resources of the country. Their ready accessibility to transportation facilities, and their nearness to centers of population, give them many advantages over more remote forests for both of these purposes. It is none too early to be making plans for their expansion and for their multiple-use management as producers of wood, water, wildlife, and recreation.
