Undervaluing Forests

by Mike Roselle
Issues in Resource Conservation: Briefing Series #2
2002 Center for Study of Responsive Law, $5

Introducing evidence that forests may be more economically, environmentally and socially beneficial left standing than cut down, the paper details the non-timber values of forests and criticizes certification schemes which do not adequately account for these values.

The author, Mike Roselle, summons nations to implement five fixes to their forest management policies, rousing society to weigh the benefits of wood products against the many other benefits that in-tact forests provide.

A 25-year veteran of forest work, Roselle has recently returned to Greenpeace as Forest Campaign Coordinator.
