Title: Family forest owners rule!
Author: Butler, Brett J.
Source: Forest History Today. Spring/Fall: 87-91.
Description: The largest issues facing forests in the United States are no longer about public lands. The public still wants the same things envisioned by the Weeks Actwater protection, timber supply, aesthetics, and recreational opportunities (U.S. Forest Service 1913)but the focus must now be on the lands whose fate is more uncertain. We have entered a new era, the era of private forest conservation.
