DescriptionProfits largely determine management decisions on commercial forest lands. Past decisions have therefore favored timber production over wildlife, and practices advantageous to wildlife were usually incidental. This paper explains how effective timber management on public and private lands can be coordinated with wildlife needs to obtain revenues from hunting as well as timber. The examples are drawn from the South, but the priciples and trends apply to forest lands throughout the United States.
