Thanks for telling us about the problem. Return to Book Page. Preview — Wars in the Woods by Samuel P. Wars in the Woods examines the conflicts that have developed over the preservation of forests in America, and how government agencies and advocacy groups have influenced the management of forests and their resources for more than a century.
Forest Service to value tree species marketable as wood products, as the primary forces behind forestry policy since the Forest Management Act of Wars in the Woods gives a comprehensive account of the many grassroots and scientific organizations that have emerged since then to combat the lumber industry and other special interest groups and work to promote legislation to protect forests, parks, and wildlife habitats.
It also offers a review of current forestry practices, citing the recent Federal easing of protections as a challenge to the progress made in the last third of the twentieth century. Hays describes an increased focus on ecological forestry in areas such as biodiversity, wildlife habitat, structural diversity, soil conservation, watershed management, native forests, and old growth.
He provides a valuable framework for the critical assessment of forest management policies and the future study and protection of forest resources.

In this latter case, under the rubric of "forest health," legislative amendments were added to unrelated bills and passed without open debate.
This lack of public exposure may have denied opportunities for an ecological basis to a key policy decision that carries substantial ecological implications. On the one hand, Adirondack Park salvage policies have evolved to address large-scale forest disturbances as natural events rather than catastrophes that demand intervention.
