    Difficult and challenging problems confront the forester today. Disastrous floods, critical water shortages, and the uninterrupted trend of forest depletion have focused attention on the important role forests play in the strength, economy, and prosperity of the Nation. Forests are increasingly prized for recreation, the protection they afford sources of water, and beneficial effects on stream flow and erosion. These factors contribute much to the health and well-being of the public; hence they should receive full consideration in the shaping of forest policy and management objectives.
