World's Boreal Forests:
Management & Sustainability

seedingSustainable forest management means following ecologically sound practices that maintain the forest ecosystems' integrity, productivity, resilience and biodiversity. That involves sustaining a wide range of ecological processes through which plants, animals, micro-organisms, soil, water and air interact.

Scenic As a result of these processes, forests provide many functions essential to life on this planet. They maintain the chemical balance of soil, air and water, stabilize the climate, recycle nutrients, break down pollutants, clean the air and water, and are vital to watershed protection, soil formation, carbon storage and the habitat for wildlife. The products of forest growth may be harvested on a sustainable basis, and even enhanced through silvicultural practices, as long as the forests' inherent biological limits are respected.
