The difficulties of discussing the problems of forestry and Appalachian area economic development require an interdisciplinary perspective relevant to both economies and forestry. This article uses ecological parallels to economic processes to bring silviculture and economic growth into a common focus. By using a verbalized dynamic or flow analysis of the development process of forest related activities as an analog of the growth perspectives of silvies, the dispassionate technical, analytical, and policy viewpoint which should be common to both forestry and economies is followed to isolate some of the frustrating problems of forestry's role in economic development.
