Forest Management for All: State and Private Forestry in the U.S. Forest Service

James G. Lewis (ed.)

Forest Service national historian Lincoln Bramwell engagingly captures the State and Private Forestry branch’s history, demonstrating why, time and again, it was able to overcome numerous challenges to its purpose—and at times its existence—to become the federal leader in providing and coordinating technical and financial assistance to landowners and resource managers. In doing so, says Bramwell, State and Private Forestry became indispensable to “the Forest Service’s mission to focus the nation on the value of forest conservation.”
