8-page color section
ISBN 1-931498-21-0 :: $29.95 The Solar House Trees are the ultimate sunlight-harvesting machines. The care and nurturing of trees has been a recurring theme in Chelsea Green's publishing program, from The Man Who Planted Trees to Julia Alvarez's A Cafecito Story . Here is a book that foregoes romance in favor of straightforward, practical knowledge. Twenty-five years ago, when Hans Morsbach became interested in cultivating trees and managing small woodlands, he searched for a good how-to manual. He never found one, so he decided to write his own someday. Based on his subsequent experience, combining deep research into the academic literature on forestry with his successes and failures as a small-scale commercial tree farmer, the result is Common Sense Forestry , an indispensable reference for anyone who owns or wants to own wooded property. Morsbach is an unabashed nature lover as well as a businessman, and well understands the essential importance of a long-term approach to sustainable forest management. In this highly readable and entertaining text, the author offers a comprehensive look at managing existing woodlands by creating, and later maintaining, forests that promote biodiversity while providing an income stream. This comprehensive examination of sustainable forestry includes everything from choosing land to beginning a forest through seeding and transplanting, from pruning and thinning to harvesting trees, from debates over herbicides and clearcutting to working with professional foresters, from business strategies to tax planning. While Morsbach's personal experience is in the Midwest, the information in this book is applicable to a wide range of trees and is relevant to all regions of North America.

Congo Basin: Making Forestry Sustainable
by Melissa Othman
Forest Service engineer Rick Toupin assesses selective felling practices in the Congo. U ntil recently, the Congo's forests were relatively unknown to science. While we know that the Congo has the second largest intact tropical rainforest in the world and that many people depend on its spectacular biodiversity for their survival-there is so much we don't know. However, our understanding of this complex ecosystem is changing, in part through the Central African Regional Program for the Environment (CARPE), a program supported by the USDA Forest Service and funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development

Forestry Sustainable Development Projects in China With investment totaling 1.9 billion yuan (US$230 million), a “Forestry Sustainable Development Project” has officially kicked off in China according to a recent announcement made by the State Forestry Administration. The project is another major forestry construction scheme to be carried out in China, following three others the National Afforestation Project, the Forestry Resources Development and Protection Project, and Forestry Development in Poverty-stricken Area. The Forestry Sustainable Development Project includes donations of 16.9 million euros (US$16.78 million) from the European Union (EU), US$16 million from the Global Environment Facility (GEF) and a US$93.9 million loan from the World Bank (WB). The project involves three major parts. The first regards the management of 210,000 hectares of natural forests in Hainan Province and is funded by EU. The second part is concerned with natural protection and management of 13 reserves covering 1.16 million hectares and will be funded by the GEF. The third part will involve the planting of artificial forests, and will use money loaned from the WB to support 250,000 hectares in 110 counties from 11 different provinces including Hebei, Shanxi and Liaoning.

"Commercial forestry is an important industry in South Africa, generating considerable employment and foreign exchange. The industry has grown rapidly after the World War II with active government support. However, since the beginning of the transition to democracy in 1991, there have been increasingly vociferous attacks on the industry regarding its urban and big business bias and its role in damaging the environment. The transition to democracy has brought a change in the structure or make-up of its stakeholders which have diverse expectations from the industry. At the same time, the sustainability of the industry is a major concern for policymakers and has to be dealt with in conjunction with concerns from its stakeholders and society at large. This study points out a need for new institutional or policy reforms and suggests a set of policy guidelines that might defuse the tension in the industry and set it on a sustainable path."

Sustainable forestry consists of management practices that ensure the health and growth of our forests for future generations.
As our population expands and our economy grows, responsible people are concerned about our forests. They want assurances that our forests will always be there.
The U.S. forest and paper industry shares this concern. Companies that rely on healthy and productive forestland for their livelihood have a keen self-interest in making certain that forests remain healthy and productive. The relationship between a healthy, productive forest and the forest and paper industry is elementary: no forest, no industry.
The U.S. forest and paper industry has answered these concerns with a bold new commitment to long-term forestry. It's called the Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI), a comprehensive program of forestry and conservation practices designed to ensure that future generations of Americans will have the same abundant forests that we enjoy today. It's the largest sustainable forestry and certification program in the world, encompassing nearly 94 million acres of forestland throughout North America and over four million acres in Florida.
Leading conservationists have already hailed the SFI. Patrick Noonan, chairman of the Conservation Fund, calls the initiative "a bold program" that represents "a substantial and meaningful commitment" to the cause of sustainable forestry.

Assistant Director- and head of the FAO Forestry Department The keynote opening speech at the first technical session of the Eleventh World Forestry Congress, 14 October 1997, Antalya, Turkey. It is my privilege to open the technical portion of this Eleventh World Forestry Congress. In so doing, let me express my appreciation for the excellent arrangements made by the Turkish Government and particularly the Ministry of Forestry. Our hosts have worked extremely hard to prepare the ground for us. In addition, many others have contributed to the voluminous documentation of the Congress. Our task is to take these ideas and discuss. debate and develop them over the next eight days, using the best knowledge from around the globe to arrive at a declaration and set of ideas that will carry world forestry into the twenty-first century, stronger, more secure and more able to meet the challenges before it. The theme of this Congress is "Forestry for sustainable development: towards the twenty-first century". Thus, this Congress is about the role of forests and trees in contributing to overall sustainable development. It is about trees in forests, but also about the multitude of other plants and animals that inhabit forests, and about the soil, water and air. This Congress is also about trees

Sustainable Forestry
by Jacinta French
Forests are amongst the earth's most complex ecological systems, whose dynamic processes and functions we do not yet fully understand. Not only do forests produce timber for our shelter and fuel needs, they also support the largest proportion of the world's biodiversity and are an important source of food and medicines. They provide environmental services such as flood control, soil protection, carbon fixing and landscape enhancement as well as recreation and amenity facilities and socio- economic benefits. Globally, both natural and plantation forests are under threat, primarily from inappropriate management practices. READ MORE...

Tanz The Postmodern Forest: Images Differing by Dr. Steven Taubeneck Sustainable Development: What Do We Owe to Future Generations? by Dr. Thomas Hurka INTRODUCTION The conference was organized around the idea that sustainable development and competition are in some sense competing visions of our global future. Nowhere is this potential conflict more salient than in the forestry industry. Canada, and B.C. in par ticular, shares with Germany a concern for the fate of forests and for the industries based on forest resources. This conference sought to bring together academics from both Canadian and German universities to explore the ethical challenges associated with these competing visions. Those attending the conference had the opportunity to hear talks from a wide variety of specialties, ranging from botany to cultural studies to philosophy. Of the talks given, four were developed into papers to be included in this publication. Special thanks go to Dr. Schutt for making his speaking notes available for this purpose.
