Forestry in Puerto Rico


Forestry in Puerto Rico



Caribbean Forester 1(1): 7-11



Puerto Rico, with an area of 3,435 sq. miles, enjoys a subtropical climate with rainfall varying from 30 to over 200 in. per yr. The island was raised by a folding of the ocean floor, with later deposits of limestone along the coast. Soils are clays or clay-loams, on which are produced a variety of tropical crops. The population is dense, and this has resulted in nearly complete destruction of the original forests. The forests fall into approx. 7 distinct tropical types. A beginning of forestry was made several yrs. ago, but during the last decade forestry activities have been greatly expanded. To date, over 18,000 acres have been planted with tropical hardwoods, nurseries operated to provide the necessary stock, various surveys made for management purposes, and many miles of roads and trails constructed to facilitate the various activities of forest management.
