The Possibility of Plantations…

Integrating Ecological Forestry into Plantation Systems, New National Wildlife Federation Report
As you know, plantations systems increasingly make up a larger share of the world’s wood fiber supply. This trend shows no sign of diminishing in the years ahead. Consequently, wood fiber plantations have, and will continue to have, a significant influence on the biodiversity of our landscapes and the quality of habitat for many wildlife species. This report seeks to show the innovation underway in many parts of the world to better integrate wildlife and biodiversity needs within plantation systems. Some of these examples are from the United States. We hope this promotes a more vigorous conversation about what is possible in plantation forestry in this country and elsewhere.
