Dr. William J. Lange

From New Perspectives to Landscape Scale Conservation:  Searching for a Federal Forest Policy

For the past two decades, the primary
focus of federal forest management
has been on preservation and
ecological restoration.  While a number
of policy initiatives have been proposed
to accomplish this management objective, implementing them has proven to be a challenge.  Overcoming this challenge will require agreement from all those who have a stake in the future of federal forests.
