Summary There is an emerging revolution in wild forest relationships. Wild foresting has evolved from ecoforestry, going far beyond merely having a minimum impact on the world, to sustaining and promoting forest health, along with biological and cultural diversity. Wild foresting promotes the responsible use of forests, connects indigenous knowledge systems, and unites a great variety of local practices tailored to unique forests around the world. Prize-winning experts dedicated to reconciliation in humanwild forest relationships have contributed their stories to this comprehensive, in-depth anthology.
