Economically optimum rotation age. In forestry rotation analysis, economically optimum rotation can be defined as “that age of rotation when the harvest of stumpage will generate the maximum revenue or economic yield”. In an economically optimum forest rotation analysis, the decision regarding optimum rotation age is undertake by calculating the maximum net present value. The culture and management of our native forests for development as timber or ornamental wood. (Springfield, ), by H. W. S. Cleveland (page images at HathiTrust) Timber depletion, lumber prices, lumber exports, and concentration of timber ownership. Report on Senate resolution   Forests of the Midwest U.S. provide numerous ecosystem services. Two of these, carbon sequestration and wood production, are often portrayed as conflicting. Currently, carbon management and biofuel policies are being developed to reduce atmospheric CO2 and national dependence on foreign oil, and increase carbon storage in ecosystems. However, the Cited by: The conservation of natural forests contributes significantly to the goal of achieving sustainable economic development. There is, however, growing concern that natural forests (which provide tangible and intangible economic benefits to humankind) are being lost at a rate which (combined with other factors) seriously threatens sustainable economic development because of the Cited by: 1.

Trees are a remarkable resource that, when managed responsibly, can meet a wide range of fundamental needs for people and the planet for generations to come.   Africa - Democratization across much of Africa in the early s not only affected political institutions, but also had repercussions for natural resource governance. Participatory management has since become the standard for measuring a state’s progress toward sustainable natural resource management (and in particular, forest management), due to its inclusive . An intact forest landscape (IFL) is an unbroken natural landscape of a forest ecosystem and its habitat–plant community components, in an extant forest zone. An IFL is a natural environment with no signs of significant human activity or habitat fragmentation, and of sufficient size to contain, support, and maintain the complex of indigenous biodiversity of viable populations of .

As urbanization continues to alter our environment, the understanding and management of trees and forests in and around urban areas is essential to provide optimal forest services and values to current and future generations to sustain environmental quality, . FTA’s five flagships and three cross-cutting themes are led by a set of senior researchers, known as flagship leaders and cross-cutting theme coordinators. The program is operationally coordinated by a Management Team, which is chaired by the FTA director and includes the flagship leaders – currently two from the Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR), [ ].   Introduction. The concept of additionality is used to distinguish the net benefits associated with an activity or project by comparison with what would have happened in the absence of the intervention (HM Treasury, ).In a climate change mitigation context, additionality is generally used to mean net greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions savings or Cited by: 7.   As forests, agricultural fields, and suburban and urban lands are replaced with impervious surfaces due to development, the necessity to recover green space is becoming increasingly critical to maintain environmental quality. Vegetated or green roofs are one potential remedy for this problem. Establishing plant material on rooftops provide numerous ecological .

Genre/Form: Computer programs: Additional Physical Format: Online version: Boyce, Stephen G. Management of forests for optimal benefits (Dynast-OB). Asheville, N.C. Forest management involves the integration of silvicultural practices and business concepts (e.g., analyzing economic alternatives) in such a way as to best achieve a landowner’s objectives.

Management of forests requires a plan (however developed), and an assessment of the activities necessary to meet the objectives.

The main objective of this study is to find out optimal management strategies for productive planted forests when carbon benefits are considered.

With a given initial state of forest, the research attempts to: a) determine the planting and harvesting patterns, which can maximize net returns from selling timber and sequestering carbon; b) compare the optimal management Author: Nghiem Thi Hong Nhung.

The management of forests is often referred to as forestry. Forest management has changed considerably over the last few centuries, with rapid changes from the s onwards culminating in a practice now referred to as sustainable forest management. Forest ecologists concentrate on forest patterns and processes, usually with the aim of.

The recommended management actions that may help vulnerable forests adapt to climate change include density management, planting, and assisted migration. Relevant quote: “ Overall, density management should be the most effective [silvicultural] approach because of its ability to lessen drought stress, fire risk, and predisposition to insects.

The Faustmann model has played a key role in the determination of optimal forest rotations. Faustmann introduced a simple and deterministic competitive economic model, the objective of which was to maximize the present value of perpetual returns to the fixed factor of production, a unit of timber land.

The optimal rotation problem, as viewed by him, is a timber management Cited by: 1. Start studying Forest Management. Learn vocabulary, terms, and more with flashcards, games, and other study tools.

Traditional forestry economics has been chiefly concerned with wild or cultured forests as commercial, agricultural, enterprises. For these, net economic benefits stem from the harvested timber and the objective is to calculate the.

The capacity of nonfederal forests to supply goods and services to society is a function of private and public investments. These investments are made in an environment of complex interactions between forest landowners, public agencies, and various commercial and nonprofit organizations.

The Faustmann model is extended to include multi-stands and spatial arrangement of forest stands of Eucalyptus urophylla and Acacia mangium in Yen Bai province in northern Vietnam.

Farmers’ current practice is to cut trees at age five, Author: Nghiem Thi Hong Nhung. Making openings as small as 1/8 acre (about six mature trees) can provide forage and possibly some income from timber.

However, to be optimal, openings should be an acre in size. Ideally, openings should comprise 1‐ 5% of the total forest area. These areas will reforest naturally, and so new openings will need to be made every few years. The book also examines policy issues, including forest management, timber pricing and exports, environmental standards, land ownership & use, and the institutional settings.

This project compares the nest success of songbirds in reforestation areas close to and far from existing forest, and in mature forest next. In the Mediterranean region, forests play a key role in the welfare of urban and rural peoples, by providing highly appreciated marketed goods as well as high value but nonmarket services.

Anthropogenic climate change entails a significant impact on Mediterranean forests, such as the reduced species diversity, high density, pest, and diseases. In this chapter, we present the Author: Sferlazza Sebastiano, Maetzke Federico Guglielmo, MiozzoMarcello, La Mela Veca Donato Salvatore.
