The 'Ecosystem Components' Journey
Opportunities to EBM
In commercial forest tenures, areas protected for alternative values or without merchantable timber are usually excluded from long-term forest management planning. Finding ways to include whole landscapes for EBM has become a challenge. Indeed, we have a habit of managing ecosystem components as independent entities. Natural pattern approaches can involve one, several, or all ecosystem pieces and the EBM ideal involves integrated management of all ecosystem components.
The EBM Journey
The journey is the process of supporting and sharing knowledge that will allow us to shift current forestry management towards EBM
