GBO Resource book on eco-forestry and forest products

— type: Manuals

Ecological forestry and forests products, as opposed to traditional forestry where there is excessive exploitation, emphasizes that forest resources should not harvested at the expense of destroying the forest and the environment. It emphasizes on a balance between ecological equilibrium and forest logging and on the integrative harvesting of forest resources, such as “integrative forestry”. On one hand, we should not lay exclusive emphasis on the protection of forest resources. Local residences, forest owners and managers require profits in the reasonable management of the forest to motivate them to cooperate. On the other hand, as it takes a relatively long period of time to renew forest resources, which, once destroyed, are hard to be restored, we should avoid predatory exploitation, excessive deforestation and ignorance of afforestation.
