About this product
- SynopsisIndustrial forestry in North America is at a crossroads. A broadconsensus has emerged that both the practice and theory of forestrymust change in order to achieve sustainability. This book is apioneering attempt to consider the concrete policy implications of themuch discussed transition to sustainable forestry. It integrates twodistinct academic literatures: one that seeks to define and identifyways to implement sustainable forestry, and another that focuses on therelative merits of regulatory and market instruments for promotingenvironmental values.,The Wealth of Forests considers the concrete policy implications of the much discussed transition to sustainable forestry. It integrates two distinct academic literatures; one that seeks to define and identify ways to implement sustainable forestry, and another that focuses on the relative merits of regulatory and market instruments for promoting environmental values.,These are turbulent, unpredictable, yet opportune times for Canadian forestry. Never before have competing demands on Canadaâs forest resources been so great. At the same time, we are finally being forced to confront the sustainable limit of these resources. Now, the improbable has happened: government, industry, First Nationa, and NGOs appear to be part of an emerging consensus that industrial forestry in Canada must change. The Wealth of Forests is a pioneering attempt to grapple with the policy implications of the transition to sustainable forestry. While much has been written on the theory and practice of sustainable forestry and on the relative merits of regulatory versus market approaches to environmental protection, these literatures have nnot as yet been bridged. Using illustrations based on recent developments in British Columbia forest policy, this collection provides that bridge by analyzing the potential and limits of market, regulatory, and other policy instruments as means of achieving sustainability. Featuring new work by many of Canadaâs leading forest policy scholars, this interdisciplinary collection is devoted to translating the concept of sustainability into practice in key areas of forest policy, including tenure, timber pricing, forest practices, land-use zoning, and eco-certification. The Wealth of Forests also considers how domestic and international legal regimes might constrain the adoption of policies that could bring us close to the elusive goal of sustainable forestry.

- ReviewsRecommended.,Recommended.- B.D. Orr, Choice May 1999The ideas are dazzling, imaginative, and innovative. The authors don't pretend to have all the answers to the dilemma of how to restructure BC's most important industry. They do make a major contribution to the discussion.- Stephen Hume, The Vancouver SunThe book contains 15 thoughtful essays on a wide range of forest policy topics, all taken from the viewpoint of foresters in British Columbia. A large part of each essay, however, has broad applicability. People more current with British Columbia than this reviewer may find the book somewhat outdated, but it remains a sophisticated and well-constructed overview for the rest of us.- John C.
