This chapter discusses the development of the concept of sustainability as applied to the management of the national forests in the United States. It traces the development and application of sustainability policy regarding the national forests to the concept (incorporated into the Organic Act of 1897) that national forests would be established to provide a continuous supply of timber, thereby implying sustainability. The development of the National Forest Service is also described.

Keywords:   national forest, United States, sustainability policy, Organic Act, timber
