Forest patterns: beauty and use.
U. S. Government Printing Office.
Issued by the Forest Service, part of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, this booklet is based on a speech that the Chief of the Forest Service, Edward P. Cliff, gave on the work done, including "patch cutting," now known as clear cutting. "Patch cutting is something like an urban renewal project, a necessary, violent prelude to a new housing development. When we harvest overmature, defective timber that would otherwise be wasted, there is bound to be a temporary loss of natural beauty."
3 sheets 16 x 11 inch, bi-folded and secured booklet style. Printed recto and verso. Blue marks on front cover.
