Alternative Means of Motivating Investment in Private Forestry
Abstract:Timber production is one of the goals which private owners and the public have for the nation's forests. Various obstacles prevent different private owners from contributing as much as they might to the timber production goal. A number of policy instruments are available for overcoming these obstacles and these might be applied by various agencies. Success in motivating private forestry will depend on the right policy instruments employed by the right agencies to overcome the real obstacles.
