The Forest Services Renewable Resource Assessment is designed to inventory renewable forest and range resources and to analyze the supply and demand for them. The Renewable Resource Program is designed for management of these resources.

The 1975 Assessment and Program documents were hard to read; the writing style was verbose, and statistics were not documented. Major issues were not discussed separately from the systems format. The major analytical issue in the Assessment was the quality of the forecasts. The Assessment and Program presented the results of some type of economic analysis, but they contained few regional disaggregations for information presentation, supply and demand projections, or analysis. Greater analysis of issues involving the relationship between the public and private sector is needed.
