"Sustainability of timber harvesting means harvesting not more than the annual growth. Sustainable harvesting is a measure of economic viability and a criterion for ensuring self-sufficiency and profitable returns"
(Lagan et al., 2007)
"FSC succeeds in halting (tropical) deforestation"
(Di Girolami & Arts, 2018)
- Sustainable forest management is based on methods that jeopardize neither future harvests of forest products nor future benefits of environmental services (Putz, 1994).
- Certification has the potential to improve weak normative frameworks that allow the unsustainable use of forests (Cerutti et al., 2010).
- The strict application of reduced-impact logging and the establishment of an HCVF with an appropriate contiguity and area within a commercial forest reserve are definitely two effective measures to protect the physical environment, flora, fauna and interactions while producing timber (Lagan et al., 2007).
