Publication Development Disclaimer:

This publication was developed to demonstrate positive functions and values of forest resource management that may not be recognized by many people and organizations. Forest resource areas not represented here, or that are under represented, are results of insufficient information in forms suitable for this publication. Every attempt was made to show the myriad of functions and values that come from forest-dominated ecological systems.

Information contained in this publication was derived from primary, secondary, and combined sources. As such, not all statements could be verified from its original research source. Therefore, the authors make no claim, declaration, or warranty concerning the validity, accuracy, or truthfulness of values or statements. However, the authors do believe that this set of facts, figures and concepts represents a realistic compilation of attributes of forest resource management, and as such provides a valuable contribution to awareness and understanding in the lives of American families, their communities, and this nation.
