    Description

    The organizers of this symposium assigned me the task of the devil's advocate. My job is to convince you that we either do not need to increase wood yield or cannot it. Clearly they did not have much faith in my oratorical abilities because they have scheduled no less than 32 speakers to follow me, each dealing with a specific aspect of how to get on with intensive management. It is unlikely indeed that I would succeed in having the symposium cancelled as unnecessary and my title is admittedly facetious. However, I do have a deadly serious point to make. Simply stated my point is that as a profession we have been largely ineffectual (perhaps even to a degree, irresponsible) in the promotion of intensive forest management in the northern forest and that this will continue until we modify our approach. It would be most appropriate to begin here in the next two days.
