Wilderness Issue

This special issue of the Journal of Forestry (May 2016) provides a deep dive into the implications of changing societal connections to wilderness stewardship and its relationship to science. The lead authors of the articles in this issue were selected because they are highly respected among foresters and federal land managers in the various natural resource agencies who manage wilderness areas across the Nation. This issue will likewise be appreciated by many others who value wilderness and hold these lands dear.

Wilderness areas are key parts of many landscapes and vitally important to many communities. The 110 million acres of designated wilderness areas make up 17 percent of the federal land in the United States. Although many Americans believe that lands designated as wilderness require little or no management because they are "protected,” foresters and stewards of the wilderness understand that these lands need to be managed if they are to continue to provide the many benefits that originally led to them being designated.

This special issue is ideal for classroom use, with trainees, and a perfect addition to any wilderness enthusiast’s library.
