DescriptionWater quality and long-term sustainability are major components addressed within the ecosystem approach to forest management. Forest harvest practices are often implicated as having adverse impacts on sensitive aquatic communities and on the long-term sustainability of forest ecosystems. While careless harvest practices can certainly cause adverse impacts, proper forest management practices can minimize or even eliminate these adverse effects. As forest ecosystems become more intensively managed, it is imperative that management practices be developed and utilized to minimize environmental impacts and assure long-term ecosystem sustainability.
