Byline: GUEST VIEWPOINT By Jim Weaver For The Register-Guard It was the greatest timber fight in a generation - the clash over the National Forest Management Act of 1976.
Introduction When Congress passed the National Forest Management Act of 1976 (NFMA),(1) thereby amending the Forest and Rangeland Renewable Resources Planning Act of 1974,(2) many were hopeful that management of the nation's natural resources had entered an era of sustainability.
