Mexico has large forests of types associated with both temperate-cold and warm-humid climates. Species are highly diverse, with pines, firs, and some tropical hardwoods being the most important. A continuous forest inventory was begun in 1972. The wood-using industry cannot yet supply the nation's needs, and large amounts of pulp and paper are imported. Completion of additional plants should largely remedy this situation and enhance employment opportunities.

Professional education is offered at two forestry schools and one school of wood technology; there are three schools for technicians. Research is concentrated mainly on ecology, silviculture, genetics, and wood technology.
