The National Silviculture Workshop's genesis in 1973 was the result of forward thinking individuals within the Timber Management staff of National Forest Systems. Several national issues of the 1970s including, but not limited to: 1) the passing of the National Forest Management Act, 2) the mandate that all timber removal, reforestation, and timber stand improvement on Forest Service lands be prescribed by trained and certified silviculturists, and 3) a national policy of intensive timber management on Forest Service lands provided the impetus for "National Silviculture Work Conferences" (Nelson 1974, Gillespie 1977).
