Vivid drone footage and interactive tools provide users with a unique, engaging experience. The site draws on over 20 years of research conducted by the fRI Research Healthy Landscapes program. 1. Introduction. The production of high-value timber is an important aspect of commercial forest management that aims to sustain a forest-based bioeconomy and wood products industry in the face of changing forest production and world markets (Toppinen et al., ).The timber supply available at any time depends upon past management activities (e.g. silviculture treatments and harvest Author: Baburam Rijal, Luc LeBel, David L.

[Grant Robert Milne; Newfoundland Forestry Centre.]. Valuation methods are particularly useful for extending the reach of cost-benefit analysis (CBA), in order to include non-market environmental impacts in the assessment of development projects or alternative forest land uses.

CBA is not perfect, nor is it the only way to assess forest land uses, but it is useful for illuminating Size: KB. Non-market valuation has become a broadly accepted and widely practiced means of measuring the economic values of the environment and natural resources.

In this book, now available in paperback, the authors provide a guide to the statistical and econometric practices that economists employ in estimating non-market values.3/5(1). In standard calculations of national income there is a dichotomy in the treatment of natural and man-made capital assets.

The differences in accounting procedures effectively overestimate the income generated by natural-resource-based production relative to the income produced using man-made capital, creating market signals that recommend increases in resource exploitation without regard for.

The Canadian Forest Service is a leader in the development of a range of forest inventory tools for a broad array of applications.

The National Forest Inventory, a collaborative effort between the federal, provincial and territorial governments, compiles detailed information for each of Canada’s forested Canadian Forest Service maintains a national database and leads data.

Twigs of trees and shrubs are the most important food for moose in the winter. Surveys throughout the parks over the last three decades have shown increasing damage to forest vegetation as the moose population has climbed. In balsam fir forest, research has shown that moose can remove as much as 98 per cent of the saplings.

Availability of the oldest age-class of balsam fir (Abies balsamea) forest, the major forest type of western Newfoundland, is declining through logging, insect effects, and management for a year harvest rotation. Loss of old-growth balsam fir forests may limit the availability of woodpecker habitat if nesting trees and feeding substrates are most abundant in these later successional stages.
