State managed lands are more profitable than those managed by the feds.

Well who would have ever thought it. (That was sarcasm in case you didn’t detect it.) — jtl

One of the most widely voiced fears of those who don’t understand the Transfer of Public Lands Act is that the states may not be able to afford to manage their own lands.  Nothing could be further from the truth.

In the book, “Who is Minding the Federal Estate?“, author Holly Fretwell lays out the facts quite clearly.

“Not only do federal land agencies earn less than the state trust lands, they outspend state agencies by a wide margin.  The Forest Service spends nearly thirteen times more per acre than the average state trust agency, and the National Park Service spends seventeen times more. Even the BLM, controlling 264 million surface acres and 300 million subsurface acres, outspends the average state trust more than two to one.”

These numbers don’t even address the unused revenues available in our public lands, such as the timber that is currently rotting on our forest floors. Rather than providing income to our states it is becoming nothing more than fuel for our next raging forest fire.

Study after study proves that our states are better managers of our public lands than any federal agency.  And no one cares more about preserving our public lands than those of us who live here.  Protecting our public lands is crucial, and the Transfer of Public Lands from federal to state management is The Only Solution Big Enough.

Sincerely,

About Land & Livestock Interntional, Inc.

Land and Livestock International, Inc. is a leading agribusiness management firm providing a complete line of services to the range livestock industry. We believe that private property is the foundation of America. Private property and free markets go hand in hand—without property there is no freedom. We also believe that free markets, not government intervention, hold the key to natural resource conservation and environmental preservation. No government bureaucrat can (or will) understand and treat the land with as much respect as its owner. The bureaucrat simply does not have the same motives as does the owner of a capital interest in the property. Our specialty is the working livestock ranch simply because there are so many very good reasons for owning such a property. We provide educational, management and consulting services with a focus on ecologically and financially sustainable land management that will enhance natural processes (water and mineral cycles, energy flow and community dynamics) while enhancing profits and steadily building wealth.
