Community forestry and tree theft in Mexico: resistance or complicity in conservation?

Community forestry and tree theft in Mexico: resistance or complicity in conservation?

Development and Change 31(1): 281-305

ISSN/ISBN: 0012-155X

DOI: 10.1111/1467-7660.00155

Centralized systems often create resistance, as communities whose vegetation management practices have been declared illegal by forest bureaucracies anonymously contest the restrictions imposed on them by 'stealing' trees and committing 'arson'.
