Along with a better understanding and regard for "environmental forestry," woodland owners may need government assistance such as tax incentives, management plans, marketing information, cost-sharing programs and long term loans. In the long run the vast areas of privately owned forests will be managed for the benefit of the owners and the people. The small private woodlands are indeed the hope of the future. They should be the top priority for the forestry profession.
