This book traces the history of China's forestry development over the past fifty years, which has been guided by the "three ecological theories." It reviews its current status, and realizing the benefits of adopting advanced international management theories and practices, proposes a path of development based on six key programs. In the implementation of these programs, forestry development will undergo major changes, especially in the shift in emphasis from timber production to the preservation and enhancement of the ecological environment. The six key programs will facilitate the five phases of transitions to realize striding development. This will form the basic framework of the theory of forestry development in the new century, signaling the industry's entry into a new phase of accelerated development which will propel the country toward sustainable growth. The theories, policies, and models discussed in this book will be useful to policy makers, researchers, specialists, entrepreneurs, and consultants who are involved with the environmental and forestry industry. Its publication will play an important role in facilitating exchange and cooperation among the international forestry community and contribute greatly to a better environment for all.
