Forest Certification: The View from Europe's NIPFs
Despite different backgrounds and cultures, British and Finnish landowners hold remarkably similar opinions regarding forest certification. They are unsure of certification's potential benefits, either economic or ecological, and few would find participation attractive. Owners of large forest estates consider certification a threat; owners of smaller properties are less economically dependent on forestry and may see in certification a way to improve the state of their forests. If market forces eventually require large-scale certification, the needs and preferences of private forest landowners must be taken into consideration to ensure their participation.
