DescriptionThe non-Federal forest lands, which comprise three-fourths of the Nation's forest lands, are the key to meeting projected future needs for all forest products and uses. At the same time, the Federal role in State and Private forestry cooperative programs is being critically questioned. Public attitudes toward Federal expenditures, and the possibility of sunset legislation, may change the nature of Forest Service cooperative programs. One possible approach would be for each State to develop a comprehensive forestry plan suited to both State and national needs, perhaps related to a national program expressed through the Resources Planning Act process, as a basis for granting Federal funds for cooperative forestry activities.
