About this book

Sustainability policy and performance are profiled for eight timber-exporting or major wood-using temperate nations: United States, Canada, Finland, Sweden, Germany, France, New Zealand, and Chile. The authors also assess the possible effects on each nation of various criteria for sustainability.

'Provides a good overview of sustainable forestry related to temperate zones. It also presents a good, practical discussion of the costs and benefits of moving towards application of sustainability practices in temperate forests. A good supplemental text for courses on forest management and administration, and on forest policy.' -Hans M. Gregerson,University of Minnesota
