The challenges faced by foresters in Caribbean small island states are characterised by issues related to the services that forests provide rather than the production of timber. Commercial harvesting is rare and administrations focus on the critical functions of forests in meeting basic needs (e.g. water and soil conservation) and the contribution of forest services to broader economic development (e.g. tourism and recreation). Management is therefore most often concerned with issues such as watershed management, recreational use of forests, ecotourism, habitat protection and maintaining forest cover on private land.
