More Description

Here is the layperson's complete guide to the New Forest Economy, in which small- and medium-sized logging companies and mills thrive' in which we nurture our value-added industries instead of selling off our raw materials at too high a volume and too low a price, in which old forests are protected and new ones are planned and cultivated intelligently, in which the company town gives way to the integrated community, in which there are enough jobs and enough trees, in which the Clayoquot crisis and cries of "Brazil of the North" are history.
Best of all, say the authors, the resources for a major change are already in place, from the trees to the mills to the bargaining table. And everyone - even big business and big government - knows it's time for a new approach. At the heart of "Forestopia" is how we get from here to there: how we can stop the momentum of current high-volume raw lumber sales and make room for smaller, labour-intensive outfits, how the new economy works in the context of the world marketplace, and how we're going to pay for it.
