World Forestry: Forestry in Chile
Abstract:From dependence on its native forests. Chile has moved rapidly to reliance on timber from industrial plantations of exotics, chiefly Pinus radiata. In 1980 total consumption of wood by industries was 10.7 million cubic meters, of which 4.6 million went to sawmills and 3.1 to pulp and paper plants. Log exports, which began a few years ago, accounted for 1 million cubic meters. A subsidy encourages tree planting, and other recent laws regulate cutting of native stands. There are three forestry schools and one technician school. Technical assistance under the United Nations Development Programme has fostered rapid growth of forestry and wood products industries.
