The toughest problem facing the forestry profession today results from a major segment of the public not realizing commercial forest land can be managed without destroying its utility and appearance. Consequently much of the public lacks confidence in foresters as stewards of the land. The author is under constant pressure to manage forest land in face of many of these conflicting public points of view. He points out the results of some of these pressures. Also, he admonishes the forestry profession to adopt management objectives and techniques which result in acceptable conditions on the land that the public can and should be shown.
