SENSE AND SUSTAINABILITY
The effectiveness of sustainable forest management is no longer a question. So why don't more people know that private forests are healthier today than they were 100 years ago?
The hundreds of millions of acres of forests managed effectively by private landowners is an economic engine for America. The land provides jobs, everyday products, plants and animal habitats, and numerous recreational opportunities.There are and probably always will be critics who don’t agree with some forest management practices, but they don’t represent the majority nor do they acknowledge some cornerstones of why sustainable forest management works in America’s private forestland system.
