From the text... 'The intimate relations of soil and climate, and the effects of land treatment on stream flow, have been recognized for decades. Since we live in an environment composed of many facets, the best pattern of land us is not always or immediately discernible. Too often the operator goes in for short-term gains, overlooking the long-term advantages of more conservative use. Before an operator can be assured that his plan for removing vegetation from his land is sound, it is well that he first considers a few basic principles of wild land management.'
