ProSilva promotes forest management strategies which optimise the maintenance, conservation and utilisation of forest ecosystems in such a way that the ecological and socio-economic functions are sustainable and profitable. The general approach to management which is advocated by ProSilva, includes market and non-market objectives, and takes the whole forest ecosystem into consideration.
With reference to sustainability in its broadest sense ProSilva members believe
1. production of timber and other products
2. protection of soil and climate
4. recreation, amenity, and cultural aspects
