Title: What are we hiding behind the visual buffer strip?: forest aesthetics reconsidered

Author: Hull, Bruce R.; Robertson, David P.; Buhyoff, Gregory J.; Kendra, Angelina;

Date: 2000

Source: Journal of Forestry. Volume 98. Issue 7. 2000. pp. 34-38

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: The forestry profession has no offical policy on forest aesthetics: Neither foresters nor the public have clear guidelines as to what a socially acceptable, actively managed forest should lookl ike. Hints of an impplicit policy can be found in the Society of American Foresters (SAF) position statements on timber harvesting and in various recommendations for best management practices found in state, federal, and industrial forestry publications. These implicit policies may send a hypocritical message to the public about the practice, intent, and ethics of forestry.

Keywords: forestry, aesthetics, ecological, policies, Society of American Foesters
