About this book

How do we protect forests of high conservation value, while meeting the growing demands for wood and wood fibre-based products? "Plantations and Protected Areas in Sustainable Forestry" comprehensively examines each side of the debate, presenting a diverse group of conservationists and natural resource professionals exploring the latest issues in forest management in the United States. The goals of renewable resource management are kept at the forefront of the discussions, while providing effective strategies to meet economic and social needs, and acknowledging the need to conserve biologic diversity and protect forests. For developed nations, there is an ethical responsibility to consider both goals of sensible development as well as conservation of the environment.

"Plantations and Protected Areas in Sustainable Forestry" discusses the various issues involved with intensively managed forest plantations in the United States and elsewhere, all with a focus on approaches that maximize yield, while minimizing any negative effects. Critical issues are tackled, such as the role of plantations and their management, certification to ensure conservation, job creation from plantations, the effects of intensive forest management on society and environment, and the protection of biodiversity. The book provides a solid foundation on which to form a consensus that addresses the needs of economics and society as well as natural resource conservation.
