In the United States there is a close relationship between the presence of forests and economically depressed areas. Therefore the forest resource is frequently viewed as a potential vehicle of economic uplift. As a consequence new challenges are being thrust upon forestry offering new and difficult economic problems. These tend to be centered around resource abundance instead of the more familiar resource scarcity situations. Such problems promise to become more common in American forestry in the future. However, some old philosophies may have to give way before the profession can hope to cope successfully with these new challenges.
