Why continuous cover has wealth of benefits for all

I have written previously about the concept of continuous cover forestry (CCF), also called close-to-nature forest management, with pointers on how to convert a conventional plantation to a CCF system over time. This week I will look at some advantages of close-to-nature forest management.

Before foresters and owners alike dismiss CCF as a viable, even desirable, option, perhaps they would do well to consider the long-term global trend towards the more sustainable stewardship of all our resources.
