“Evidence-based forestry is the conscientious, explicit, and judicious use of current best evidence in making decisions to enhance provision of products and services from forest resources. It recognizes that forest resource management is context specific, ever-changing, and involves uncertainties, and that the best evidence is derived from a systematic process which aims to minimize bias” (Petrokofsky, Holmgren & Brown 2011, after Sackett et al. 1996 and McKibbon 1998)
