Abstract:Uruguay is trying to develop a forest resource to offset extremely unfavorable cash flow and to diversify agricultural products. Soils and climate favor rapid growth of exotic species, especially eucalypts. Tax incentives encourage private landowners to establish plantations. The nation has too few foresters and needs to expand its forestry education program. Transportation systems and mechanization are inadequate at present.
