That advocacy will continue. Departures from sustained yield by the BLM in the recent past have been in conflict with the O&C Act’s primary objective of maintaining sustainable communities side by side with sustainable environments.

Forestry, the management of forested land, together with associated waters and wasteland, primarily for harvesting timber. To a large degree, modern forestry has evolved in parallel with the movement to conserve natural resources. Learn more about forestry techniques and goals and the history of forest.

The Forest Service was supposed to ensure the integrity and sustainability of the national forests, but its postwar policies maximized timber harvests, undermining its efforts to implement sustained-yield forestry and environmental protection.

New technologies facilitated the rapid harvest of the forests. Forestry is the science and craft of creating, managing, using, conserving, and repairing forests, woodlands, and associated resources for human and environmental benefits. Forestry is practiced in plantations and natural stands.

The science of forestry History of sustained-yield forestry book elements that belong to the biological, physical, social, political and managerial sciences. This article describes the history of sustainability in forestry, including the various social values on which its interpretation has been based.

The original principle of sustained yield has gradually been broadened to a more inclusive principle of sustainable forest management.

The Forest History Society has long had an interest in documenting the history of the U.S. Forest Service, the federal agency with responsibility for managing the largest number of forested acres in the United States. In addition to maintaining the U.S. Forest Service Headquarters History Collection, FHS has also published numerous materials documenting the history.

Sustained yield forest management has been widely accepted as a major objective of forestry. It implies continuous production of forest crops with the aim of achieving, at the earliest practicable time, an approximate balance between net growth and harvest, either by annual or somewhat longer periods.

The concept, introduced to North America by European foresters at the end of the 19th century.

Sustained yield use is most commonly actively applied in forestry.

Forest management goes back to Feudal Europe, when the large land owners depended on the income from their holdings to maintain their castles and armies.

The words sustainable forest or sustained yield comes to us from foresters of the 18th and 19th century in Europe. At the time, much of Europe was being deforested, and foresters became increasingly concerned since wood was one of the driving forces in the European economy. Introduction. As early as the eighteenth century the term sustainability was widely elaborated in European forestry as the principle of sustained yield (SY), which later became a general paradigm in forest management world-wide (von Carlowitz ; Wiersum ; Farrell et al.

; Puettmann et al. ).The International Union of Forest Research Organizations (IUFRO) defines SY as “the. History of sustained-yield forestry.

Forest History Group S The sustainable yield of natural capital is the ecological yield that can be extracted without reducing the base of capital itself, i.e. the surplus required to maintain ecosystem services at the same or increasing level over time.

The term only refers to resources that are renewable in nature as extracting non-renewable resources will always diminish the natural capital.

A Short History of Sustainable Development. A short history of the concept of sustainable development could begin with the US government’s National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of This act came largely in response to the Santa Barbara oil spill, which had a devastating impact on wildlife and the natural environment in the area.

Sustained yield forestry in B.C. never quantified or accounted for these services. One recent study by a team lead by Robert Costanza estimates that timber production is only a small fraction of the total service value provided to human economies by temperate forests. Sustained yield alienates and interferes with other human use.

This paper analyzes how sustained yield (SY) forestry is defined and implemented in Sweden and Russia, two countries with different forest-industrial regimes. We first compare definitions of SY forestry in national legislation and policies. Then we study forest management planning in two large forest management units with respect to: delivered forest products and values, how the harvest level.
