Positive Impact Forestry is a primer for private woodland owners and their managers on managing their land and forests to protect both ecological and economic vitality. Moving beyond the concept of "low impact forestry," Thom McEvoy brings together the latest scientific understanding and insights to describe an approach to managing forests that meets the needs of landowners while at the same time maintaining the integrity of forest ecosystems. "Positive impact forestry" emphasizes forestry's potential to achieve sustainable benefits both now and into the future, with long-term investment superseding short-term gain, and the needs of families -- especially future generations -- exceeding those of individuals.

Chapters Include

  • Forestry’s Past Is Prologue
  • Understanding Forest Ecosystems
  • Creating Disturbances in Forests through Silviculture
  • Harvesting and Selling Timber
  • Positive Impact Harvesting Practices
  • Managing Forests for Wildlife and Nontimber Products
  • The Future of Forests and Forest Products
  • Intergenerational Planning Methods for Forests

Paperback 296 pages, 6" x 9"
