The use and management of forests in the United States, especially the public owned ones, have been the focus of considerable controversy. First published in 1974, this volume, a collection of papers originally delivered at the RFF Forest Policy Forum, explores alternative forest management programmes to see what is biologically, economically, socially and politically possible. This title is a valuable resource for students interested in environmental studies, as well as for policy makers.
