Forests and Rainforests
Our Vanishing Forests (Short Version)|
The history and policies of the U.S. Forest Service
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.
