Unfortunately, the very tenets of National Forest (and public land) management in the US are biologically and ethically wrong. Radical change won’t come easily. Nonetheless, it is clear that America’s current system of public land management simply does not work. These wondrous natural places deserve something much better. Let’s begin to work now, not only for a radical overhaul of the National Forest system, but for sane biocentric management of all of our public lands.
