ago in 1885, Gifford Pinchot was leaving for college. His father
had grown concerned about the way the forests were being destroyed by loggers
and urged Gifford to study forestry and learn about saving the forests.
Gifford soon found out that no one was studying forestry in the United
States. But in Europe, courses were being taught so Gifford studied
there. But when he returned home, he found that the lumber companies
had no interest in hearing what he had to say. How could he make
people understand that the forests were precious and needed to be protected?
Pinchot, Gifford, 1865-1946.
