Uruguay, a country with very little natural forest, has a small but increasingly important forest industry based on afforesting prairies with nonindigenous species, mainly flooded gum (Eucalyptus grandis), blue gum (Eucalyptus globulus), and loblolly pine (Pinus taeda). Internal and external forces make forest expansion a plausible scenario. For these forests to be certified for sustainability, however, several environmental problems need to be addressed and research performed to gather data on pesticides, water use, flora and fauna, soil changes, and social and economic impacts.
