Abstract

In 2001 the Georgia Traditional Industries Program (TIP) sponsored a cooperative study at the D.B. Warnell School of Forest Resources, University of Georgia, to analyze the long-term sustainability of the fiber supply in Georgia. The subject of this study is relevant to a diverse array of disciplines, and it offers the opportunity to explore various aspects of sustainability not directly related to the supply of fiber or timber alone. Examples of such aspects include studies of biomass densities and production, carbon densities, sequestration and credits, and landscape changes. We describe some of the technical aspects of data pooling and compilation, program settings and assumptions, and initial findings relating to this study.
