Abstract:
Most people remember George Vanderbilt as the builder of Biltmore Estate near Asheville. Less well-known is his influence on forest management in the nation. Surrounding his home were 125,000 acres of forest which he named Pisgah. Vanderbilt was determined that his woods would not be subject to a \"cut down and move on\" policy prevalent in the nation at that time. Ellis discusses Vanderbilt's vision of well-managed forests.

Abstract:
The North Carolina National Forests are organized into four administrative units. Nantahala is in the southwest, Pisgah in the north, Uwharrie in the Piedmont, and Croatan in the Coastal Plain. Headquarters are in Asheville. Over a million acres of national forests provide a reserve of timber and additional assets of wildlife, watershed protection, and valuable recreation within the state. Strode discusses the demands the state's increasing population will make over the next twenty-five years on the forests' ability to provide recreation, hunting, fishing, wood, and water.
