Abstract

Land management has, within the last few years, come into the picture as a national project. A new country with seemingly inexhaustible resources of forests, grasslands, rivers, lakes and soil, set as an idea subjugation of the wild to man's immediate use. Timberland was reduced to farm land and waste land, range land over-used and reduced in carrying capacity, and farm land depleted for greater immediate return. There was no federal land policy except to get rid of land as rapidly as possible.
