We examine how forest certification can be used more effectively to produce concrete conservation results on forests that have been designated for timber production, by limiting forest fragmentation (thereby improving forest intactness over a landscape scale), and by conserving structural diversity, wildlife habitats, late successional components, natural disturbance regimes, and other components of biodiversity. We conclude that forest certification, as an integrative tool to be used in silvicultural management processes, can play an important role in promoting the sustainability of managed forests and of forestry.
