Our Vanishing Forests (Short Version)

The history and policies of the U.S. Forest Service

"The evidence is damning... well researched. Recommended." Library Journal

OUR VANISHING FORESTS examines the history and policies of the U.S. Forest Service (USFS). In 1891 large tracts of U.S. forests were established as reserves in an effort to improve and protect our native forests. In 1906 these areas were designated National Forests and the USFS was empowered to manage them for the public trust.

"Don't watch this film unless you're prepared to be made furious...The old adage about pictures being worth a thousand words was never more apt than when applied to this well-made film."
