Non Technical Summary
PhotoThe objective of the continuing complementary mission is to evaluate forest sector role in sustainable management of natural systems. This includes but is not limited to estimating and analyzing indicators of sustainability of forest management, estimating and analyzing carbon storage in wood and paper products in support of global change research, and evaluating market and product opportunities to use small diameter timber in the West to mitigate fire hazard.
