Description: The management of any species for wood implies that there is a market, or confidence that there will be a market, for the wood. Certainly public programs to encourage forest owners to grow wood are based on the premise that markets exist and will continue to exist. Although the growing and cultivating of birches for wildlife and aesthetic quality also has direct costs, it has no clear market, no selling price. Thus the cost of managing forests for these uses must be borne by the public whenever the desired results incur costs over and above those that are a part of management for wood production.
