Sustainability of forest plantations: a review of evidence and future prospects

Sustainability of forest plantations: a review of evidence and future prospects

International Forestry Review 1(3): 153-162, 205-206

This paper focuses on the mensurational evidence concerning the long-term productivity of forest plantations. It is concluded that measurements of yield in successive rotations of trees suggest that there is no widespread evidence that plantation forestry is unsustainable in the narrow-sense. Where yield decline has been reported, poor silvicultural practices and operations appear largely responsible.
