I have become increasingly concerned in recent years about the proliferation of forestry problems in relation to the rate of production of new knowledge required to solve them. New techniques like balloon logging and remote sensing add to opportunities to practice forestry, while new constraints imposed by such national concerns as pesticides and environmental health complicate its practice. Competition for land use by a society now dominately motivated by urbanized values adds new social and economic dimensions. Consequences of poor management decisions are more far-reaching and more drastic than ever before.
