Forestry's Response to Increased Demand for Commodity and Amenity Values
Abstract:Future demands on forest resources will require more intensive management, emphasizing the multiples in multiple use. The political support necessary to finance more intensive management will depend on better consensus among various forest clients. A tendency to polarize over stereotyped images of roaded versus unroaded areas obscures the broader range of values desired from each. Three apparent trends with long-range implications include the energy crisis, increasing popularity of quasi-commodity-oriented activities, and the value of forests as a medium for employment, education, and rehabilitation of people.
