Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
We are currently faced with many important social and environmental challenges when it comes to forest management. We are, however, fortunate that forest resources can support the many economic, environmental, and social needs of society. Managing forests for diverse, sustainable goals can be made complicated by the volume and complexity of information that one should consider, and the broad array of scenarios that one should examine. As forest managers continue to adjust to societal demands for production, it is evident that cultural, regulating, and supportive ecosystem services, as well as new and innovative approaches, should be considered and assessed, to promote knowledge development. This Special Issue welcomes original research studies that describe advances in decision-making processes and analyses aimed at the active management of forests. Applications of well-described decision-making processes to new management problems involving the scheduling and placement of management activities are also welcome. Papers should have a practical or place-based issue at their core. Moreover, advances in theories (silvicultural or otherwise) should be accompanied by practical, quantitative applications to real landscapes.
