    Description

    The silvicultural practices prescribed under an ecosystem management regimen will alter the volume and character of National Forests' marketable raw material base. This alteration will affect forest-dependent communities that have traditionally relied upon these resources for their economic and social well being. Community based atypical forest products, processes and uses, such as landscape timbers, mushrooms, rustic furniture, seasonal greens, etc. add value to the smaller, more diverse and/or less traditional raw materials these silvicultural practices will provide. As it implements ecosystem management driven silvicultural prescriptions, the USDA Forest Service should recognize the importance community-based enterprise has in complementing high volume commodity focused industries.
