To achieve ecologically sustainable forest management, we must consider various aspects, not only sustaining yield and economic returns, but also other ecosystem services. Some techniques to enhance yield from forests, such as herbicide spraying and exotic plantations, have been applied, but such techniques can be harmful to other ecosystem services. To compromise and solve such issues, more discussion and case studies are necessary from local to global scales.
At present, stakeholders in forest and forestry sectors and using forest resources are focusing on accomplishing Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), as the UN Forum on Forests notes that forest activities contribute to the achievement of 14 out of 17 SDG targets. Thus, the stakeholders should be interested in how forests can be managed for ecologically sustainable forest management.
This Special Issue welcomes contributions about natural, social, and interdisciplinary approaches to accomplishing proper ecologically sustainable forest management.
