Description: Demand for non-timber forest products (NTFPs) is increasing, and growing numbers of people are enhancing their incomes by harvesting NTFPs from the wild. If forest ecosystems are to continue to produce NTFPs in the long run, harvesters must learn how to gather them in ways that minimize harvest damage to woods and wildlife. This guide, developed in a collaborative, information-sharing effort with harvesters, non-governmental organizations and USDA Forest Service employees, provides guidelines for sustainable harvesting of 24 NTFP plant species found in the Hayfork Adaptive Management Area on the Shasta-Trinity and Six Rivers National Forests of northern California. Illustrations for each species were prepared by Jolie Lonner. Photographs are by Roger Jaegel.
