Ecosystem Management in the Northeast: A Forestry Paradigm Shift?
Abstract:A survey of professional foresters in the northeastern United States was conducted to determine (1) whether professional forest resource managers viewed forest ecosystem management and other "new" forestry language as representing practical constructs, and (2) whether there is a difference between USDA Forest Service foresters and private-sector foresters in the degree to which they have applied "new" forestry. Results suggested that the forest management behaviors of most foresters in the region may be influenced more by traditional forestry concepts and language than by "new" forestry.
