AbstractThe early years of this country's development were years in which relatively little interplay was exercised in the exploitive endeavors of society, whether these were in range resources, wood products, minerals, or water. It is questionable whether the present generation, given the same set of circumstances, would manage these endeavors any differently; yet each generation would be operating on a common base of facts. These facts consist of some simple but fundamental environmental truths having to do with soil, water, and vegetation-how and for what they are used, their capacity for yielding the needs of society, and their integrity for future use. The immutable interrelationship between this environmental trinity-soil, water, vegetation-and between on-site and off-site interests, are the genesis of the absolute necessity for coordinated resource planning.
