Forestry of the future must be sure of its philosophical foundation as well as imaginatively practical. Foresters must decide whether they are to become "professional" or remain true to the heritage of their brief past--environmental management in its broadest meaning. The mere restructuring of forestry curricula is a modest and inadequate response to the growing impatience of the American public for a vital new approach to environmental problems. We must rekindle the total environmental spirit of forestry if we are to vigorously respond to the pressing needs of our world.
