DescriptionRecently a great deal of attention has been given to forest products that are plant-based but do not come from timber. These "alternative" products are found growing under the forest canopy as herbs, shrubs, vines, moss and even lichen. Although they have been gathered for generations, non-timber forest products have had less attention than "more important" timber products. However, astute landowners, willing to make the effort, may improve forest-based incomes by gathering and marketing these products.
