World Forestry: Problems Facing Reforestation in the Philippines
Abstract:Reforestation has become a primary concern of resource management and government in the Philippines. Efforts are hampered, however, by a variety of problems that tax not only the technical expertise of Filipino foresters but also their sociological talents. Environmental factors, lack of financing, and a shortage of trained manpower pose serious difficulties. An additional need is for methods that gain the interest and cooperation of local land users.
