Forest conservation in the Anthropocene
There is increasing scientific acceptance that we have entered a new “Anthropocene Epoch” wherein human influence, especially in climate and global population, is altering the evolution of virtually every ecosystem on the planet. Representing one-quarter of terrestrial ecosystems, but containing an estimated two-thirds of carbon in living terrestrial organisms, and nearly three-quarters of terrestrial species, our forests face growing risk in the Anthropocene.

Forest Sustainability in the Development of Wood Bioenergy in the U.S.
Written by the Pinchot Institute and the Heinz Center

Two national priorities - mitigating climate change, and achieving greater energy security through increased domestic renewable energy production - have converged to create rapidly expanding demands on U.S. forests for wood-based bioenergy. Careful consideration and forethought is needed, however, to ensure that increases in wood harvesting do not lead to unintended consequences for biological diversity, water quality and other forest ecosystem values. This report summarizes the results of a two-year study of the challenges and opportunities for sustainable wood bioenergy, including a national dialogue involving more than 280 experts and stakeholders across the U.S. and Canada, and contains recommendations that can help achieve important public policy goals for both renewable energy and sustainable fores management.
