Multiple use of the United States national forests means the “harmonious and coordinated management of the various resources, each with the other, without impairment of the productivity of the land, with consideration being given to the relative values of the various resources, and not necessarily the combination of uses that will give the greatest dollar return or the greatest unit output.”[1] Multiple use implies a sustained yield of outdoor recreation, range, timber, watershed, and wildlife and fish values.
