Title: Our national concern about forestland development.
Author: Kline, Jeffrey D.;
Source: Timber West. 30(5/6): 50
Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication
Description: As the U.S. population grows, many forestry professionals are thinking more about forestland development. Although forest policy debates often focus on whether to manage public forestlands for timber, ecological, or recreation purposes, almost three-fifths of the nation's forests are privately owned. While public forestlands will be with us for the foreseeable future, private forestlands have the potential to be lost to developed uses. Nationally, almost one million acres of forestland were lost to development annually from 1992 to 1997. Another 26 million acres could be lost by 2030.
