DescriptionThe debate over forest-management policy in the U.S. often is cast as a choice between jobs and [pick the environmental attribute of your choice]. The purpose of this paper is neither to rehash nor to characterize these conflicts, but to discuss insights into them that have emerged from an examination of the forest-economy relationship in different regions of the U.S. Specifically, we examine the forest-economy relationship associated with six of the Long Term Ecosystem Research (LTER) sites: Bonanza Creek, Alaska; H.J. Andrews, Oregon; Sevilleta, New Mexico; Coweeta, North Carolina; Northern Temperate Lakes, Wisconsin, and Hubbard Brook, New Hampshire.
