This chapter characterizes sustainability as a central and traditional concern within the science and management practices of forestry. It summarizes the historical evolution of sustainability in forest management and the concept of a “regulated forest”. It then examines the means by which natural resource policy developed in the United States, the influence of the European concept of sustained yield, and the promotion of forest conservation practices, and additional possibilities for policy development to achieve sustainable forest management both on local levels and in a global context.

Keywords:   sustainable development, conservation, environmental protection, forest policy, regulated forest
