The Forest and Rangeland Renewable Resources Planning Act of 1974 (RPA) directed the Secretary of Agriculture to prepare a renewable resources assessment by the end of 1975, with an update in 1979 and each tenth year thereafter. This 1989 Assessment is the third done since 1974. It is composed of 14 supporting documents and this summary document, which presents an overview of the present situation and the outlook for the land base, outdoor recreation and wilderness, wildlife and fish, forest and range grazing, minerals, timber, and water.
