There is a widespread attitude among technical foresters that the sole function of the forest is wood production. Wood, wood and more wood is the motto. Nothing shall stand in the way of even a little more production of wood according to this even if it is accomplished through the elimination from forest territory of other uses which add invaluable service to the people who are owners of these public properties.
