NTFPs can play an important role in contributing to the sustainability and stability of rural communities. They are also an important part of the practice - not just the theory - of sustainable forest management. There are opportunities to increase total forest values through compatible management to enhance both timber and non-timber values. A framework for thinking about compatible management strategies is given. Case studies from Canada and the US are then presented, with the objective of stimulating forest managers to consider options for compatible management in their local areas. Finally, suggestions are made for increasing the success of compatible management strategies.
