    Dependable information on the supply of all raw materials is vital to the conduct of the war and to the success of current and future efforts at post-war planning. This economic survey of our forests which are an integral part of the Nation's reservoir of raw material is essential to a complete understanding of resource potentialities and of the industries depending on them. The data presented result from the first Nation-wide field inventory ever to be made of our forest land and the volume, quality, growth, and species of the timber resource. Although undertaken initially as an essential contribution to national, social, and economic welfare in peacetime, it is proving no less a necessity in wartime.
