What is Ecological Forestry?
Ecology is the study of the interrelationships among living organisms and
their non-living environment (climate, slope, geology, soils, time,
disturbance, etc.), while forestry is in some ways like agriculture
involving the planting, harvesting, and use of trees by humans. Ecological
forestry reminds us to use the forest in a sustainable way, to conserve our
natural resources for now and future generations.
