Description: The forestry profession has the responsibility of managing forests for all of their values. In the past, this has usually not been done. Often, timber has been the only value considered. The emphasis has not been on practices that combine other values with timber production. Such forestry practices must consider forest types and conditions, site quality and characteristics, and the long time needs of the people. This will require a broad concept of economics and based on all values. These would include watershed protection, erosion control, recreation, aesthetics, wildlife habitat, wilderness management, and the survival of Earth as a home for humanity.
