Jim Schmid’s Trail Quote of the Day #485 – Feb 9, 2017

US-Forest-Service-patch-2014There are many great interests on the national forests which sometimes conflict a little. They must all be made to fit into one another so that the machine runs smoothly as a whole. It is often necessary for one man to give way a little here, another a little there. But by giving way a little at present, they both profit by it a great deal in the end.

National forests exist today because the people want them. To make them accomplish the most good, the people themselves must make clear how they want them run.

—GIFFORD PINCHOT, first Chief of the US Forest Service, (1905-10), 1865–1946

For the want of a trail, the finest white pine forests in the United States were laid waste and scores of lives lost (speaking of the big fire of 1910).
