Sustainable forest management, also known as sustainable forestry, is the practice of regulating forest resources to meet the needs of society and industry, while preserving the forest's health.

Sustainable Forest Management (SFM), an approach that balances environmental, socio- cultural and economic objectives of management in line with the “ Forest Principles ” 1 adopted at the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED) in   This book is dedicated to global perspectives on sustainable forest management.

It focuses on a need to move away from purely protective management of forests to innovative approaches for multiple use and management of forest resources. The book is divided into two sections; the first section, with thirteen chapters deals with the forest management aspects while the second section.

The book incorporates recent advances in a variety of fields and provides suggestions for solutions to important management problems that range from theoretical approaches to practical applications.' Klaus J.

Puettmann, Department of Forest Ecosystems. and vitality (e.g. by application of appropriate silvicultural treatments and by fire, pest and disease management) and to conserving or enhancing biodiversity in forests (e.g.

by effective management of forest conservation areas, enhancing connectivity between forest areas). The Forests Handbook, written by an international team of both scientists and practitioners, presents an integrated approach to forests and forestry, applying our present understanding of forest science to management practices, as a basis for achieving sustainability.
