Private forests comprise 60 percent of the forest area in the European Community. Pronounced fragmentation of holdings is a serious abstracle to management and regular wood supply. The average size of private holding is only about 4.5 hectares. Some 3.5 million private forest properties have less than 5 hectares. Various fiscal and nonfiscal incentives are used to foster management on these properties. Some of the experience acquired in the European countries may be applicable in the United States.
