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.

Stewardship and Landscape Coordination for Sustainable Forests by John Fedkiw and Gerald A. Rose. 2008.
  • An experienced perspective of sustainability and natural resource management as a process rather than a destination.
  • Demonstrates the practical application of Fedkiw’s theoretical Pathway Model for Sustainability through the activities of the Minnesota Forest Resources Council (MFRC).
  • Praised by Dave Zumeta, the Executive Director of the Minnesota Forest Resources Council, as, "...a valuable addition to the literature on sustainable forest management and protection. It uses a specific empirical example to help make the abstract concept of sustainability more concrete."
