Plantation and Natural Forests in Latin America — a Balanced Development?

  • Ronnie de Camino
Part of the World Forests book series (WFSE, volume 1)

Abstract

In many Latin American countries the allocation of scarce financial resources for forestry development purposes has been discussed extensively by policymakers and the forestry community. The main question has been whether forestry should concentrate on intensively managed plantation forests or place more attention on the sustainable management of natural forests. However, this question represents a false controversy.
