Forest Management for Timber Production and Forest Landscape Restoration

In this policy brief, lead authors Plinio Sist and Marielos Peña-Claros question current guidelines for timber harvests and advocate for sustainable forest management. The brief proposes cost-effective silvicultural treatments to enhance timber yields from managed natural forests, recommends the restoration of degraded forests for timber production, and promotes community-based forestry to increase production forest areas while supporting rural development. This comprehensive approach aims to pave the way for sustainable practices in the Amazon's forest management.
