    The plants and fungi that are harvested from forests for purposes other than timber are not fully incorporated into management, policies, or resource valuation. These nontimber forest products (NTFPs) have important social, economic, and ecological values and they are integral to the culture of the people of the United States. The plants and fungi are fundamental to the functioning of healthy forests and are essential for the resilience of these ecosystems.
