Kates assembles a treasure trove of facts relating to the development of the northern forest as it exists in the early 21st century, but, in my (Charles Forbes') opinion, he does not make the case that the forest as it now exists was planned, though it is the result of various government and private actions that were planned, but not necessarily coordinated. An excellent bibliography and extensive notes, covering items that are not necessarily in the bibliography. Deals with issues: farming, forest policy, zoning, recreation.
