Abstract

One conclusion from the 50-year forest projections described in Chapters 2 through 8 is that some of the most dramatic changes to the forests of the North will be the direct result of human activities, including land-use change, forest management, greenhouse gas emissions, and invasive species introductions. The tools that society will have available to influence the type and intensity of these and related human activities will draw from a complex mix of legal, institutional, and policy frameworks. The concepts in this chapter provide a context for the prior chapters of this report and for future policies and decisions about forest conservation and management.
