Introduction

This chapter addresses an extremely broad question. Southern forests and their management are influenced by a large body of legislation that stems from all levels of government: Federal, State, and local. Some laws address forests specifically, but many others influence forest conditions indirectly. Measuring the impact of a particular law or regulation can be difficult, if not impossible, except for programs that provide funding for specific actions and have reporting requirements. To a large extent, current forest conditions and trends reflect the combined impacts of all legislation in effect over time.


The topics included in this chapter address concerns identified by the public as important aspects of the overall question. Shown below are the major components of this overall question, the sections that address them, and the authors principally responsible for those sections:
