The nonindustrial private forests are a large and valuable national resource and the best possible understanding of their characteristics, capabilities, and potentials is useful for the formation of national policy on natural resources. In this title, originally published in 1979, Marion Clawson presents an informative description and analysis of the nonindustrial private forests of the United States and offers his best judgement as to the economic potential of these forests to produce wood and other forest outputs. This book is directed to foresters, economists, policy makers, conservationists, and students interested in environmental issues.
