In this paper we explore meaning makings of gender equality in forestry by drawing on a national survey of all women with an academic forestry education in Sweden. We analyse two open-ended questions concerning their experiences of being a woman in forestry and how gender equality in forestry could be improved. The aim is to investigate how these narratives construct norms and notions of "gender equality" in relation to forestry. We identify three dominant logics where gender equality is constructed: 1, in relation to women and concerning numerical representation. 2, as gendered power relations and organisational norms and culture. 3, as something distant from themself by emphasising that their position in the industry is motivated by competence rather than gender. While issues of gender equality has climbed the agenda of the men dominated Swedish forestry, little is known about how these initiatives are being received and understood among men and women working in forestry. On-going research on ...
The Forestry Commission has conducted similar surveys of public attitudes to forestry and forestry-related issues every two years since 1995. The most recent set of three separate surveys was conducted in 2011; in Scotland, Wales, and across the UK as a whole. The full results are available within the 2011 Public Opinion of Forestry reports available on our website at www.forestry.gov.uk/forestry/infd-5zyl9w.. Questions were asked to gauge the publics agreement on climate change issues, including on the ways in which forests and woodlands can impact on climate change. Some of the public views presented below do not reflect expert opinion.. The highest level of agreement was seen with the statement "trees are good because they remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and store it in wood", with 82% agreeing (Figure 4.3). This compares with only 36% agreeing with the statement "using wood for fuel makes climate change worse because it releases carbon dioxide".. Figure 4.3 Public opinion on ways ...
Interest in conserving and managing the natural forests of West Africa dates back to colonial times when forest area was "reserved" for government use. According to Jackson et al. (1983), around 1980 the area of these forêts classées in five in West African countries was equal to 9 percent of the total area of tree formations (see Table 3). To this area should be added much bigger areas set aside as national parks or game reserves. The intention was that the reserved forests be conserved, managed and utilized by the respective governments. However, notwithstanding the theoretical interest in natural forest management, it usually remained little more than a concept. Some of the main obstacles to the development of natural forest management in Africa have also been inherited from the former colonial governments, i.e. outdated practices and approaches. Foresters continue to be involved mainly in raising seedlings in nurseries for the numerous afforestation and plantation programmes. Natural ...

Downloadable! This paper investigates the potential contribution of forestry management in meeting a CO2 stabilization policy of 550 ppmv by 2100. In order to assess the optimal response of the carbon market to forest sequestration we couple two global models. An energy-economy-climate model for the study of climate policies is linked with a detailed forestry model through an iterative procedure to provide the optimal abatement strategy. Results show that forestry is a determinant abatement option and could lead to significantly lower policy costs if included. Linking forestry management to the carbon market has the potential to delay the policy burden, and is expected to reduce the price of carbon of 40% by 2050. Biological sequestration will mostly come from avoided deforestation in tropical forests rich countries. The inclusion of this mitigation option is demonstrated to crowd out some of the traditional abatement in the energy sector and to lessen induced technological change in clean technologies.

HEELS ON WHEELS: 2009 SUBARU FORESTER REVIEW HEELS ON WHEELS By Katrina Ramser San Francisco Bureau The Auto Channel INTRO TO THE FORESTER VEHICLE The Forester dropped its nerdy look and adapted an SUV sex appeal that seems to work for both consumers and automotive media alike. The 2009 Forester has the honor of being awarded Motor Trends 2009 Sport/Utility Car of the Year and also became Consumer Reports top-rated small SUV, beating out competitors like the tougher looking Toyota RAV4 and the sleek, redesigned Honda CR-V. I drove a 2009 Forester with the 170-horsepower, 2.5-liter 4-cylindar Pzec (Partial Zero Emissions) engine ($451), 4-speed auto transmission with Sport Shift ($1,000) and Subarus standard symmetrical all-wheel drive. Highlights from the premium package that came standard with my model included a large, power moonroof; roof rails; rear seat retractable cup tray; all-season 17-inch tires; and steering wheel mounted controls.

A HISTORY OF THE WASATCH-CACHE} NATIONAL FOREST Submitted to the Wasatch-Cache National Forest September 25, 1980 by Charles S. Peterson Linda E. Speth Utah State University FORWORD AND ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS In writing this history of the Wasatch-Cache National Forest we have followed the suggested Forest Service history outline in spirit and general context. As the outline suggests, we have tri"ed to put the Forest in its broader persoective, both as it relates to develooments within the Forest Service generally and local background. At the same time we have looked closely at the actual function of the Forest during its various stages. Interpretively we have proceeded from the potnt of view that the Wasatch-Cache National Forest spreads over a substantial geographic area and that a playoff between interests that are essentially urban on the one hand and rural on the other, has made for considerable diversity in the programs of the Forest. Conflict between conservationists and non-conservationists ...

The New Zealand Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry was formerly known as the Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries, but in 1995 responsibilities for fisheries were passed to the newly formed Ministry of Fisheries. However, the government of New Zealand decided that, despite the loss of Fisheries, the newly created Ministry of Agriculture should continue to be known by the acronym "MAF", and should still use the same logo, because of the high recognition and regard for the name and logo amongst the countrys overseas trading partners. In 1998, this Ministry of Agriculture and the Ministry of Forestry merged to become the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry. On 1 July 2010, the Food Safety Authority and MAF were amalgamated, and on 1 July 2011 the Ministry of Fisheries was also merged into MAF.[1] MAF in turn merged with the New Zealand Food Safety Authority in April 2012 to form the Ministry for Primary Industries. The name change proved problematic however, with New Zealand shipments of meat ...

Downloadable! REDD (Reduced Emissions from Deforestation and Degradation) aims to slow carbon releases caused by forest disturbance by making payments conditional on forest quality over time. Like earlier policies to slow deforestation, REDD must change the behaviour of forest degraders. Broadly, it can be implemented with payments to potential forest degraders, thus creating incentives; through payments for enforcement, thus creating disincentives; or through addressing external drivers such as urban charcoal demand. In Tanzania, community-based forest management (CBFM), a form of participatory forest management (PFM), was chosen as the model for implementing REDD pilot programs. Payments are made to villages that have the rights to forest carbon. In exchange for these payments, the villages must demonstrably reduce deforestation at the village level. Using this pilot program as a case study, we provide insights for REDD implementation in sub-Saharan Africa. We pay particular attention to leakage,
Almost all non-wood forest products are obtained from natural forests, and some effort has been made to assess the present stock. Although the legal protection of these species is well defined, illegal exploitation is common mainly because of the high demand for these products. As a result, some species are almost extinct. The following aspects have to be studied to ensure proper management of remaining resources: Survey of Existing Stocks A comprehensive survey is needed to assess the present stock of non-wood forest products and to study the employment generation pattern of this industry. Both quantitative and qualitative data are needed. The status of individual species has to be ascertained so that vulnerable species and areas can be protected from over-exploitation. Awareness Programs Industries based on non-wood forest products are confined to households; the traditional methods used for collection and processing have not changed over the years. The waste of raw material during harvesting ...
The Cibola National Forest (pronounced SEE-bo-lah) is a 1,633,783 acre (6,611.7 km2) United States National Forest in New Mexico, USA. The name Cibola is thought to be the original Zuni Indian name for their pueblos or tribal lands. The name was later interpreted by the Spanish to mean, "buffalo."[3] The forest is disjointed with lands spread across central and northern New Mexico, west Texas and Oklahoma. The Cibola National Forest is divided into four Ranger Districts: the Sandia, Mountainair, Mt. Taylor, and Magdalena. The Forest includes the San Mateo, Magdalena, Datil, Bear, Gallina, Manzano, Sandia, Mt. Taylor, and Zuni Mountains of west-central New Mexico. The Forest also manages four National Grasslands that stretch from northeastern New Mexico eastward into the Texas Panhandle and western Oklahoma. The Cibola National Forest and Grassland is administered by Region 3 of the United States Forest Service from offices in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Elevation ranges from 5,000 ft (1,500 m) to ...

Forestry Technology: Seed Collection In agriculture, collecting seed from superior parent stock has been practiced for thousands of years. This technique results in higher yields and environmentally durable plants. This concept, however, has yet to gain widespread acceptance in forestry practice. To maximize yields and quality of trees for plantations, agroforestry, and other uses, the following principles for collecting seed should be observed.

Forest management practices are commonly used in plantation forestry to obtain renewable energy and harvest biomass, in addition to maintaining the ecological environment, by changing the flow of carbon (C) and nutrients in the food webs of terrestrial ecosystems. To identify which forest management practices, alleviate soil nutrient limitation and impact stoichiometric homeostasis in relation to microbes, we used a Pinus tabuliformis plantation in the Loess Plateau where forest management practices were conducted since 1999. Five forest management practices were implemented: two at the forest level (P. tabuliformis with and without ground litter, CK, LRL) and three of different vegetation restorations after clear-cutting (P. tabuliformis seedlings (SPL), grass land (GL), and shrub land (SL)). Generally, the threshold elemental ratios for carbon:nitrogen (TERC:N; 7.77) and carbon:phosphorus (TERC:P; 44.37) were lower than the ratios influenced by forest management practices. The forest ...

The New Zealand forestry industry has one of the highest fatality and injury rates of any industrial sector in the country. Worker fatigue has been identified as one of the main contributing factors. Currently no independent and objective large data source is available that might support an analysis of this, or provide the basis for ongoing monitoring to further investigate. In order to successfully manage fatigue in the forestry workplace, we must identify suitable ways of detecting it. Industry partners are increasingly looking at monitoring solutions (particularly lightweight, wearable technology) that aim to measure worker activities and physiological metrics in order to determine if they are fatigued ...

I just happended on this item while staying up late researching. I am an Urban Forester in another state, city about the size of yours. Before I started this position the city had no forester, no urban forest plan, no real involvement in the urban forest. My first plan of action, as is most when comming into a community was Hazard Tree Identification. The city had spent, on average about $212,000.00 each year settling claims (some death related) on litigation over tree hazards. I know of Mr. Passmore, do not know him personally, but by reputation only. You have a great man with a passion for his work and if you review the cost associated with NOT having an Urban Forester you might be suprised. I wish him all the luck in the world.. ...

To solve a large problem you often have to come at it from a different angle. It is an approach Ian Munanura, assistant professor of nature-based tourism and human well-being at Oregon State, took after starting his research in human wellness and forest landscapes.. "In my research, I explore aspects of human well-being constraints and how they influence the health of forest landscapes" Munanura says.. "I also ask questions about how forest landscapes benefit humans. For example, how can tourism on forest landscapes improve human wellness, strengthen the resilience of forest communities and reduce negative human impact on forest landscapes?". To answer this question, Munanura conducts a series of surveys and interviews of forest adjacent communities in Oregon, Rwanda, Uganda and Indonesia. He also hopes to expand his research program to Tanzania and Malaysia. To broaden the experiential learning opportunities for College of Forestry students, Munanura will use his international research network ...

Forest management comprises the use of science, economics, and social principles to maintain healthy forests. While forest management used to be an arm of the timber industry, today it includes other aspects for the purpose of conserving forests: creating sustainability in forests; multiple uses for individual forests, which conserves total forested land; fire management; and conservation of biodiversity. Forestry includes conservation methods also, but forestrys objectives strive for the best ways to use trees as a natural resource for making products. Quite a bit of controversy has emerged when the two fields different objectives are not compatible. In a general sense, forest conservation can be divided into those who seek to protect the worlds remaining forests from any further destruction for any reason versus those who seek to find the most efficient ways of harvesting forests to meet the populations growing needs for wood products.

Firmly incorporated into the Kyoto Protocol, market mechanisms offer an innovative and cost-effective means of controlling atmospheric concentrations of greenhouse gases. However, as with markets for many other goods and services, a carbon market may generate negative environmental externalities. Possible interpretations and application of Kyoto provisions under COP-6bis and COP-7 raise concerns that rules governing forestry with respect to the Kyoto carbon market may increase pressure on native forests and their biodiversity in developing countries. In this paper, we assess the following two specific concerns with Kyoto provisions for forestry measures. First, whether, under the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM), by restricting allowable forestry measures to afforestation and reforestation, and explicitly excluding protection of threatened native forests, the Kyoto Protocol will enhance incentives for degradation and clearing of forests in developing countries; second, whether carbon crediting ...

The three studies for the development of the strategy were not realized, mainly due to the security situation. Of the 4,300 hectares of plantations which were planned at appraisal, only 307 hectares were planted by the end of the project. The pilot logging operation was not implemented due to the security situation. Very limited progress was made in the adaptive research program due to the security situation, the loan portion financing watershed management was canceled in 1996. Time-consuming government procurement procedures slowed implementation. The failure by the General Directorate of Forestry to recruit an economist principal as head of the project management team hampered implementation. M&E was critical for a pilot project. However the lack of consultants and, again, the security situation made M&E very difficult. For a long period, Bank supervision missions were carried out from outside the country. ...
Dear Sir. It is good to see that Anthony Pasmore has taken up the challenge to open a debate on the New Forest Associations views to the Forestry Panel (NF Notes 6th August). Whilst the headline of our Press Release captured the attention of the media it is the detail of what we are actually looking for that is important.. The aims of the Association are simple:- to protect, conserve and enhance the unique mix of flora, fauna and heritage that make up the New Forest, for present and future generations to enjoy. Clearly over a long history (we are more than fifty years older than the Forestry Commission) we have had many dealings with management policy. Our response to the Independent Panel on Forestry recognises the good work done by excellent staff of the Forestry Commission. Our aim is to obtain the best possible management for this unique area, we are far more interested in how the Forest is managed than who manages it.. Five years ago we published The New Forest Design Plan - Recovering ...

Fonte: European Scientist] A group of leading forest biotechnology scientists from around the world call for the reassessment of all sustainable forestry certification systems and suggest that current policies should be modified to promote forest resilience and sustainability. The authors of the recent editorial published on 23 August in Science argue that the existing ban on genetically modified (GM) trees hinders research efforts. Therefore, the researchers have garnered support from more than 1000 signatories of a petition.. Non-profit organisations - such as the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) based in Bonn, Germany and the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC), in Geneva, Switzerland - were established to sustainably manage forests. Together, these non-profits have certified over 500 million hectares of forest around the world 1990s, providing consumers with the assurance they are purchasing sustainably sourced wood products. And many companies seek the FSC label, ...

With the increasing recognition of world population feeding and health, global climate change and biodiversity loss, and limited energy resources with fossil fuels calling for alternatives such as biomass crops, the relevance of agriculture and forestry for human well-being in the future is more than evident. In this context, applications of biotechnological methods including genetic engineering, marker-assisted breeding, clonal propagation of elite trees, etc., are becoming very important, but are frequently debated in the public. Genetically modified organisms were first introduced into commercial agriculture more than two decades ago, and have often led to higher yields but also more flexible and efficient management strategies (Zilberman et al., 2010). Trait manipulation of target organisms and production system components also creates opportunities for improved products obtained with more effective resource utilisation and reduced negative environmental impact. Nevertheless, manipulated traits may

STARKVILLE - As links in a chain provide support and stability, so can "business clusters" for the forest products industry, according to a new report by Mississippi State Universitys (MSUs) Forest and Wildlife Research Center.. Funded by the U.S. Endowment for Forestry and Communities Inc., the recent university study found that business clustering can provide competitive advantages and build business resilience among the entities. The investigation was conducted by MSU scientists and colleagues at the University of Missouris forestry department and Minnesota-based Dovetail Partners Inc.. "Close collaboration between members of a business cluster allows for better understanding of processes, cost structures and opportunities for efficiency improvements," said Robert Grala, an MSU assistant forestry professor. "This type of collaboration can provide the resiliency needed to address adverse market conditions and allow for the adoption of new technologies.". The study collected information ...

Gorse is a scrub weed, originally introduced as a form of farm hedging. It is easily distinguished from other pest plants by its thorny leaves and bright yellow flowers.. Gorse can spread quickly over large distances. The seeds disperse explosively, spreading across many metres. They can also be picked up by the wind and by the fur or fleece of passing animals.. Gorse grows quickly and densely and can outcompete pasture and forestry for nutrients, water, light and space. It can regrow quickly from any remains left after burning or cutting, making it hard to control and even harder to eliminate. Biological methods (animals and insects) seem to be the most effective control methods.. Gorse plants dry out over summer, increasing the risk of fires. Find out more about gorse - AgPest website ...
