Community Forestry, Defined
Abstract:The new discipline of community forestry links sustainable forestry to community wellbeing. Although community forestry has been practiced for many years in the developing world, it did not emerge in the United States until relatively recently. Community forestry efforts, which have been undertaken most visibly in rural areas, combine conservation with economic development and cultural values to benefit the local population.
