A nationwide survey of U.S. Forest Service employees examined values and management priorities across employment levels. Compared to agency policies, respondents gave higher priorities to noncommodity uses of national forests, such as recreation and wildlife. This disparity of opinion was greatest among new district rangers, who were more educated and more varied in background than other respondents. (SV)
