Robert Wolf recalls a national focus on “full development of public resources” during the 1950s and the resulting impact. He begins with the history of Region One in establishing national policy and moves into congressional activity. He describes clear-cutting methods and justifications, grazing, recreational beginnings, mining abuses, and multiple use. He also talks about reforestation resolutions in 1960, and the Forest Service failure to evaluate the issue.
