"Some idea as to how the plans of the United States Forest Service will tie in with other national plans in establishing their various forests will be given in the following paragraphs. First, and of most interest to the engineers, - the United States Forest Service plans to tie in very securely with those of the United States Engineers Corps work on flood control in the Mississippi drainage area. The general set up of the various Federal Forests, as to management, operation, and so on, are all on the same general lines. This discussion, however, will be only of the Missouri Forest, as the writer's knowledge is limited entirely to that particular forest. There have been suggested at various times, three, or possibly four big plans for flood control in this area; the damming of tributary streams, erosion control, watershed protection, and the planting of trees. As the last named, planting trees, falls under two of the previous headings, only three will be discussed"--Introduction, page 6.
