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 ...
Under the system, all Forest Management Units operate under direct supervision of the Forest Management Certification provisions to carry out Forest Resource Assessments, establishment of Permanent Sample Plots, assessments on environmental and social impact as well as High Conservation Value Forests. In addition, committees have also been set up to address issues from the local communities under the forest management areas, which include safety and conflict resolutions in a comprehensive Forest Management Plan. The other international standards used for forest certification include Malaysian Timber Certification Scheme, which is endorsed by the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification and the Forest Stewardship Council, which are the standards used by certification-accredited bodies internationally. The main benefits to having third party verified sustainable forest management system include sound forest management practices, habitats protection as well as cultural assets. Through ...
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 ...
Abstract: In this study, the land use change in a large basin of Calabria region (southern Italy) subjected to extensive reforestation at the end of the 50 has been carefully reconstructed and compared with the current situation. The runoff capacity of the basin was estimated using data available for the temporal periods before and after the reforestation interventions. The results show that the surface of the basin interested by former reforestation activities did not affect the runoff, probably due to a trade-off between the effects of reforestation and a concurrent increase in urbanized and degraded areas. Indeed, the hydrological response is linked to structural complexity of reforested areas, currently at an early stage of development that can be further promoted through forest management activities.
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 tried 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,
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 ...

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 ...

The Apache National Forest ranges in elevation from 3,500 feet to nearly 11,500 feet and is named for the tribes that settled in this area. The area from Mount Baldy east to Escudilla Mountain is often referred to as the White Mountains of Arizona. From the edge of the Mogollon Rim ...
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.

The effects of old-growth forests in relation to global warming has been contested in various studies and journals. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change said in its 2007 report: In the long term, a sustainable forest management strategy aimed at maintaining or increasing forest carbon stocks, while producing an annual sustained yield of timber, fibre or energy from the forest, will generate the largest sustained mitigation benefit.[23]. Old-growth forests are often perceived to be in equilibrium or in a state of decay.[24] However, evidence from analysis of carbon stored above ground and in the soil has shown old-growth forests are more productive at storing carbon than younger forests.[25] Forest harvesting has little or no effect on the amount of carbon stored in the soil,[26] but other research suggests older forests that have trees of many ages, multiple layers, and little disturbance have the highest capacities for carbon storage.[27] As trees grow, they remove carbon from the ...

The BC Forest Safety Council has recently looked into the risk of forestry workers being exposed to damaging levels of airborne silica and the related health implications. Silicosis is a form of occupational lung disease caused by inhalation of crystalline silica dust, and is marked by inflammation and scarring in the form of nodular lesions in the upper lobes of the lungs. The most common activities in which workers are at risk of exposure to silica dust are those that undertake chipping, grinding, drilling or hammering of rock or concrete that contains silica. Although silica is a common material, its relative presence in parent materials varies widely (e.g. crystalline silica is typically present in dust emanating from quartz, marble and sandstone). The U.S. Department of Labor estimates that silica exposure is a serious threat to nearly two million American workers. However, low historic frequency of claims citing silicosis suggests that, while its risks are not insignificant, silica ...
Succeeding in price and quality competition is not possible on a domestic basis alone. Adjusting to globalization is vital for the Finnish pulp and paper industry. Expanding production to other continents is indispensable so that the future competitiveness of domestic production can also be ensured. Finnish industry cannot respond to the needs of customers around the world on a domestic basis alone.. Succeeding in global competition is just as indispensable for the Finnish forest industries now as internationalization and the resulting consolidation and strong growth were a few decades ago. If bold steps had not been taken then, in all probability the Finnish forest industries would today consist of subsidiary mills directed from head offices abroad, more likely to shrink than to grow.. The operating model for the global paper industry in the coming years is quite clear. Pulp mills will be built in South America and Russia. Paper and board machines will be located in Asia, especially China. In ...

Forest is a resource that is increasingly utilized for multiple purposes. The balance between energy demands and the long-term capacity of ecosystems to support biodiversity and other ecosystem services is crucial. The aim of this project was to increase the knowledge on and to develop methods and tools for trade-offs and synergies analysis among forest ecosystem services based on different forest management policies.. Paper I provides an overview of existing models for integrated energy-environment assessment. A literature review was conducted on assessment models and their ability to integrate energy with environmental aspects. Missing environmental aspects concern land use, landscapes and biodiversity. In Paper II a modelling framework was set up to link a landscape simulator with a habitat network model for integrated assessment of bioenergy feedstock and biodiversity related impacts in Kronoberg County. In Paper III we continued with the same management scenarios, while the analysis was ...

As a benefit of the Classified Forest and Wildlands Program, program landowners can join the Indiana Classified Forest Certified Group which provides certification through the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC®- C071226).

North Koreas regime has increased the power of the countrys forest management departments to assist in a greenification scheme of the barren nation, but the campaign is facing setbacks as central authorities push ahead with planting unsuitable trees despite warnings from local officials, sources said.. Last year, authorities in North Korea launched a campaign of nationwide greenification, sources said, with the primary goal of planting trees to replenish soil nutrients and prevent erosion in the country, which has been ravaged by decades of environmental degradation.. As part of the campaign, authorities enlarged the size of state-run tree nurseries and fields for planting seedlings, while North Korean leader Kim Jong Un recently announced that the public should not lament the denudation of the forests, and organize trees species systematically and economically.. The central government increased the size of each provinces forest management department, which had formerly been considered ...

The Lorax made the cut back in 1989, banned in Laytonville CA for - you guessed it - attacking the forestry industry. And Tango Makes Three actually beat out Absolutely True Diary for the most challenged book in 2010. It depicts the true story of two male penguins raising a baby chick. This picture book was challenged as being inappropriate for elementary school and for depicting homosexuality. In the Night Kitchen by Maurice Sendak has been frequently challenged due to the full frontal nudity of the young boy in the book.. Some books are challenged on the basis of one word and such was the case of the Higher Power of Lucky in 2007.
