Because codes of ethics have their roots in the Judeo-Christian tradition, they are intended to guide people's relationships with one another. Because the "land ethic" describes people's relationship with the land, not with one another, it has no place in the SAF Code of Ethics. A separate set of forest practice standards could be devised to address these issues. To do otherwise is to create confusion and compromise the integrity of the code.
