Managing Timber to Promote Sustainable Forests
A Second-level Course for the Sustainable Forestry Initiative of PennsylvaniaeBook - 2007
At least 80 percent of the raw material used for wood products by the forest industry is from privately owned woodlands. This publication provides material for a course designed to help landowners, foresters, and loggers work together to assess whether a planned timber harvest will retain the diversity of species on site. It includes methods for collecting overstory and understory data, inspecting these data, and assessing sustainability.
