Processing of wood and forest products is an important unit that points out the economic impact of forests on the U.S. economy. A complete chapter focuses on government historical events and policies that have influenced forest management practices since North America was colonized. Attention is given to regional differences in forests and forest management. Laws and regulations that govern the use of forests are also addressed. This text follows an applied science approach that integrates science principles with forestry practices. Science topics are woven throughout, and reinforced through the student s need to know feature.

In addition, career options related to forests and forest management are explored. Other features include terms for understanding, student-learning objectives, chapter summaries, review questions, learning activities, and profiles on events and issues related to forests and science.
