It first investigates, from a historical perspective, how previous forest policies and discourses have influenced current forest governance and management. Secondly, it explores methods to realise alternative forest futures and how the results from such investigations may influence the present. Thirdly, it examines current methods of balancing tradeoffs in decision-making among ecosystem services.

The book is written in accessible style with sufficient introduction and explanations such that little prior experience of the topic is needed to use the information in the book effectively.
