Description: The implementation of Sustainable Forest Management (SFM) in the United States is strongly influenced by U.S. forest products markets and the numerous management decisions made by individual landowners and managers. These decisions are influenced by a mix of market incentives and regulatory actions reducing predictability in assessing progress towards SFM and causing some proponents of SFM angst because prices might provide insufficient incentive for what they believe are necessary forest practices. At the same time, conservation proponents are advocating forest management regimes that lead to reduced financial returns. These dual concerns are leading to new alliances and new approaches for forest-based conservation and management.

Keywords: Forest management, conservation, sustainability
