CERTFOR: a new sustainable forestry management standard for Chile's forest plantations

CERTFOR: a new sustainable forestry management standard for Chile's forest plantations

Forestry Chronicle 80(6): 672-677

This technical paper reviews CERTFOR, the Chilean initiative for sustainable plantation forestry. Since its release in January 2002, 1.5 million ha of Pinus radiata and Eucalyptus species plantations have been certified as well managed, with Forestal Arauco S.A. becoming the first company and major player with nearly 35% of total planted woodlands in Chile. QMI conducted the audits using a multidisciplinary international team.
