This detailed critique and history of U.S. forest policy and laws asks the question "Why are forests essential to human culture"? Connecting the material with spiritual aspects of human life, this study examines the ecological history of forest systems to convey the necessity of a "living trust" between the forests and humans to ensure the future livelihood of both. The key natural elements of the forest, such as nutrient cycles, weather patterns, and air filtering are discussed in relationship to their effect on human life. A look at human interactions and intervention with the forest, including forest fires, the creation of the United States Forest Service, and the recent federal Healthy Forests Initiative illustrate how humans have chosen to interact with the forest, often to the forest's detriment.
