Presented by Weyerhaeuser, the world’s largest private owners of timberlands, this 1971 industrial film traces the history of modern, high-yield forestry. Narrated by actor and activist Eddie Albert, the film describes the need for advanced lumber production in response to rapidly increasing population. Scientists and foresters work together to create the best trees in the most efficient manner possible.
