DescriptionProviding a balance among the various benefits and values derived from forest lands has always been a challenge for managers. Determining this balance will be an even greater challenge in the future as increasing human populations consume greater amounts of natural resources from a decreasing land base. Obviously, not all multiple uses are compatible. Past attempts to reduce conflict have resulted in separate land allocations such as natural areas, developed recreauon sites, nonmotorized and semi-prirmnve areas, research natural areas, botanical areas, and so on. Most often these designations are made piecemeal, without a comprehensive spatial plan, resulting in de facto zoning of land use. Such an approach works only when there is a large land base available to make designations, and only when a small portion of this land base has already been designated.
