DescriptionThe question of legal constraints to forest practice is currently active again. Two sources of restriction are the historic concern for timber supply and related amenities, and the mandates of the Federal Water Pollution Law. Legislators by and large, both State and Federal, realize the need of the nation for timber and will give due weight to the data presented to them by professional foresters. Foresters, on their part, have the obligation to become even more involved in the legislative process and to present the basics of sustained yield forestry in a clear and understandable manner.
