Abstract

Long term sustainability motivated forest scientists to seek methods to monitor and predict the long term development of forests. The principles of sustainable forest management were developed in times, where the public demands concerning forests concentrated on the production of timber. Thus traditional management methods mainly focused on the balance of timber growth and timber utilization. During the past decades sustainability became a prominent concern in the entire environmental context. In the context of sustainable development forests are no longer seen solely as a timber resource, making sustainable forest management

“... a system of practices for stewardship and use of forest land aimed at fulfilling relevant ecological (including biological diversity), economic and social functions of the forest in a sustainable manner”.
