The Southern Forest Futures Project: Using Public Input to Define the Issues
The Southern Forest Futures Project builds on the Southern Forest Resource Assessment (SFRA; Wear and Greis 2002a, 2002b) which identified several forces of change reshaping forests and the potential implications for economic conditions and ecological services. The Futures Project examines how these changes and emerging factors could reshape forests over the next half century and beyond. This first-phase report presents an overview of the Project, a description of the public participation process and how public comments have provided the foundation for subsequent phases of the effort.
