    Description

    When policymakers choose to reduce the amount of wood harvested on National Forest lands, the demand for wood products must be met by reducing consumption, increasing recycling, substituting nonrenewable resources, or importing more wood. Reducing the amount consumed and increasing the amount recycled will not significantly impact global demand, and both substitution of nonrenewable resources and increased importation of wood products have negative consequences. Establishing high-yield plantations of genetically improved trees grown using intensive silviculture on federal lands may allow the United States to set aside other valuable areas without exporting environmental degradation or increasing carbon dioxide emissions.
