Gifford Pichot

“…where conflicting interests must be reconciled, the question will always be decided from the standpoint of the greatest good of the greatest number in the long run.”

Gifford Pinchot, Chief Forester, 1905

This American land tells many stories: stories of courage and tragedy, enormous progress and bitter conflict. The Forest Service centennial frames the epic story of the struggle to manage a nation’s resources amid global change. We invite national audiences to challenge their ideas of conservation and the environment and to experience the ongoing pursuit of The Greatest Good.
