Projects of potential interest include the following examples:

  • Creation of local market-based jobs for in-forest activities (such as sustainable forest management, forest restoration, or sustainable silviculture).
  • Development of demand for certified wood and for products made with sustainably produced forest resources (e.g., wood, boughs, biomass, and mushrooms).
  • Promoting sustainable forest management alternatives to conversion of private forested land to other uses.
  • Creating value in forests and forest communities through developing, producing, and marketing new forest products or forest ecosystem services.
  • Advancing community-wide long-term planning for monetizing the full range of forest values, including explicit valuation of and creation of markets for forest ecosystem services.
