Abstract

This report provides a comprehensive picture of current conditions and trends in our Nation's forests, its forest industries, and its forest communities. Although the first five criteria are centered in the environmental sphere of sustainability (with the exception of Criterion 2, which clearly overlaps the economic sphere), Criterion 6 is centered firmly in the economic sphere. As the sole criterion with an economic focus, it has more (20) indicators than any of the environmental criteria. Its first two subcategories reflect the basic economic breakdown of goods (e.g., wood products) and services (e.g., tourism). The full report is available at: http://www.fs.fed.us/research/sustain/
