    Description

    Demographic and economic growth are pushing deeper into California's forest and range lands, making effective fire protection and traditional industrial uses of the land more difficult. Urban forces that will increase the difficulties in the future include: increasing urban population pressures, selective migration, low-priced housing, adequate infrastructure, decentralized development, and government inadequacies. Some compensating trends that will tend to restrict growth and minimize problems include a near-term weakening of the rural economy, few major planned developments, growth opposition, more integrated recreation uses, zoning for larger parcel sizes, and stabilization of tax benefits such as the Timber Production Zone.
