Special Issue on Future Forests and Sustainability

Climate change, globalization, and increased consumption of materials and energy lead to higher pressure on the forest resources. The task of intensifying forestry to produce more timber, paper, and energy, while at the same time ensuring ecosystem services, such as biodiversity and recreation, is a complex one. Difficult decisions have to be made if we are to strike a balance between these demands. These decisions have to be supported by scientifically-based land-use strategies to deal with trade-offs on different scales. The goal of this special issue is to provide a platform for scientists and academicians all over the world to promote, share, and discuss various new issues and developments in the area of future forests and sustainability.

In this special issue, we invite front-line researchers and authors to submit original research and review articles that explore future forests and sustainability. In this special issue, potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Natural forest resources protection
  • Forest ecological function
  • Forest development planning
  • Exotic and invasive plant species impacting forests
  • Forest loss and management
  • Sustainable forest management
