    The Wood Heat Organization was formed to support the public in the responsible use of wood energy in the home. We fulfill our mandate by providing reliable information, by conducting research into wood heating-related issues and by representing the public interest .   A book on Sustainable Forest Management (SFM) out of the cradle of its concepts and practices raises high expectations. The editor sets benchmarks high: yet another book on SFM can only be justified by new information that is of direct relevance, closes data gaps, reviews what is new in the art and science of SFM and refreshes perception of SFM among the target groups of researchers, .

Bamboo is predominately perceived as a timber substitute. Bamboo is not a tree; however, it is a grass belonging to the Gramineae family, of the subfamily Bambusoideae (Jiang ).Bamboos are considered one of the fastest growing plants on earth (Kumar and Sastry ), and can grow on marginal land unsuitable for agriculture (INBAR ).

    The world’s forest cover is approximately 4 billion hectares (10 billion acres). Of this total, approximately one-half is temperate forests. These range from the subtropics to roughly 65 degrees in latitude. As we move toward the equator, the forests would generally be considered tropical or subtropical, while forest above the 65th latitude might be considered boreal.   Non-Wood Forest Products - statistical classification and survey. The FAO Forestry Department is undertaking a stocktaking exercise on Non-wood forest products (NWFPs) to refine and improve current activities and tools. In this token, the Programme has .

Abstract: Forest genetics (FG) research in the United States began more than years ago with racial (seed source) trials of ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa Douglas ex C. Lawson) and Douglas-fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii [Mirb.] Franco) and over the ensuing four decades gradually emerged as a distinct and important discipline of study within the forestry research community.
