Sustainable management of forest plantations and natural forests in Chile

Sustainable management of forest plantations and natural forests in Chile

Sustainable forestry challenges for developing countries: 249-274

The Chilean forest sector is playing an increasingly important role in the economy of the country. It has swiftly grown during the last 25 years. About 45% of the total land area has been classified as land deemed suitable for forest growing. However, only less than 10% is covered by closed natural forests and 2% by fast growing monocultures of radiata pine (Pinus radiata) plantations, which provide approximately 80% of the total consumption of industrial roundwood.
