Description: The forest survey, a Nation-wide project authorized by Congress in 1928, consists of a complete and detailed investigation of the country's present and future forest resources in five major parts: (1) an inventory of the country's existing forest resources in terms of areas occupied by forest-cover types and of timber volumes, by species, in board feet and cubic feet, and a study of conditions on cut-over and on burned forest lands; (2) a study of the depletion of the forests through cutting and through loss from fire, insects, disease, and other causes; (3) a determination of the current and potential growth on forest areas; (4) a investigation of present and prospective requirements of the United States for forest products; and (5) an analysis and correlation with other economic data of the findings of these studies in order to sake available to public and private agencies the basic facts and guiding principles necessary to formulate and execute rational plans, national, regional, and local, for orderly, sound management and use of forest resources.
