Abstract:As the trend toward smaller parcels of land continues, many of the values associated with forestland are at risk. The Forest Bank ™, an ecosystem-based approach to forest management on private lands in southwestern Virginia, points to a potential new direction in forest management. Sponsored by The Nature Conservancy, this program attempts to blend economic and ecological objectives into an effort that will appeal to private landowners.
