About this book

The Sustainable Forestry Handbook is widely considered to be the essential aid to understanding and implementing sustainable forest management. Providing a clear and concise guide to the practicalities of implementing international standards for sustainable forest management, this fully updated second edition covers new Forest Stewardship Council requirements, High Conservation Value Forests, clearer requirements on pesticides and developments in policy and forest governance. Aimed at forest managers, and employing extensive cross referencing and easy-to-understand illustrations, this highly practical handbook explains in clear terms what the standards require forest managers to do and how they might go about implementing them.

"This book is the first to set out in clear, simple language what needs to be done. It deserves a place on every forest manager's desk and field pack"
- Duncan Poore

"'In a very practical and accessible way [...] the handbook provides a framework for understanding, planning and implementing improved forest management techniques"
- ETRFN News

"A stimulating guide to many of the issues likely to be faced in contemporary forest management"
- James Sowerby, Shell Forestry Ltd
