Forestry is the art, science and business of managing forests to achieve a desire set of goals that range from timber production to ecosystem services or we can say that it is the profession embracing the science, art and practice of creating, managing, using and conserving forests and associated resources for human benefit and in a sustainable manner to meet desired goals, needs and values. This book presents a broad overview of the profession of forestry. The book details several key fields within forestry including agroforestry, silviculture, forest mensuration, forest management, policy and law & forest statistics. Chapters presented in the book specifically deals with the forest product utilization, its protection, biotechnology, forest ecology, biodiversity, environment and engineering. Also, the chapters discuss about the physiology of tree, tree-seed biotechnology, wildlife management and harvest, processing and disposal of forest produce. Unlike other introductory forestry texts, which focus mostly on the ecology of the forests rather than practical concepts forests, Key to Success in Forestry encompasses statistical, ecological and social aspects providing a uniquely balanced text. The objective of this book is to provide readers with a global and comprehensive overview of the exciting fields of study that centre on forest, with a hope that the brief introduction to forestry will enhance the enthusiasm to delve more deeply into these fascinating fields.
