The basic objective of managing a forest resource is to meet society's needs. The yield has to be a function of society's preferences and the forests have to be managed to meet those needs and not for the aim of achieving a "normal forest." Forest management is not merely forestry, social sciences must be a part of the foresters' training as well as technical forestry.
