The need for major changes in forest and associated land development, administration, and management has been suggested in numerous articles in the post-World War II period. Whenever foresters meet they seem inevitably to discuss some aspect of the question. The problem represents a searching for solution to the short-comings of forest land development, administration, and management generally. The thesis of this paper is that much of the problem could be resolved through skillfully planned and integrated research and teaching in schools of forestry, especially in relation to multipurpose land development, administration, and management.
