Title: Sustainable Forestry and Holistic Analysis
Lead Author: Patterson, Craig M
Abstract: How do we separate data from wisdom? E.O. Wilson How does science incorporate environmental, economic and social implications (triple bottom line - Montreal Protocol) into research questions with life cycle and holistic analysis? What constitutes 'social relevance' as it is reflected in our scientific process and analysis? What values do our research questions represent? How is science leading us to a sustainable and stable society, or is it? When we look back at Forestry Science what wisdom becomes evident? How do we analyze the effects of past management in terms of causes and effects? How can we insure our connection and focus toward wisdom which is the web of ecosystem services and our sustainable place within that web? I offer my work with selective harvesting; local processing and end-product forest management as a model of sustainable forestry. This constitutes a return to the mission of Gifford Pinchot, to provide the greatest good for the greatest number for the longest time. I suggested a challenge, my model against the Industrial model in terms of jobs, healthy rural communities and healthy ecosystems in exploring the context of social relevance to the H.J. Andrews experimental forest with vague interest. Can we do better?
