Harvesting Forest Products
Harvesting wood entails cutting down trees to supply material for solid or composite wood products, paper and many others including firewood. Cutting trees does not necessarily mean destroying a forest, as some believe, provided that the forest is properly managed on a sustained yield basis, which dictates that only a volume equivalent to the yearly growth is removed, and regeneration is secured by natural or artificial seeding or planting.
