Sustainable Forestry Board's Forests of Exceptional Conservation Value Working Group

Related: Environment and Natural Resources

The Sustainable Forestry Board organized a working group to develop new strategies and standard language for addressing “forests of exceptional conservation value” within the Sustainable Forestry Initiative’s 2002-2004 program enhancements. Meridian co-facilitated the working group. The group’s consensus recommendations resulted in a plan for a detailed, collaborative database identifying forest communities that are critically imperiled or imperiled, based on existing conservation status ranking systems.
