Description: Through the McSweeney-McNary Act of 1928, Congress authorized the Secretary of Agriculture to conduct a comprehensive survey of the forest resources of the United States. This work was assigned to the Forest Service. The purposes of this forest survey are (1) to make a field inventory of the present supply of standing timber; (2) to ascertain its current rate of growth; (3) to determine how much it is being reduced through industrial and domestic uses, fire, and other causes; (4) to estimate the present consumption and the probable future trends in requirements for forest products; and (5) to interpret and correlate these findings so that they may be useful in formulating private and public forest policies. Results of this first comprehensive survey of the forest resources of New Hampshire are reported here.
