Why this book is needed Many people in many countries are grappling with issues linked to changing ownership and management of state-owned plantations; yet, there is a paucity of digestible lessons from experience and useful guidance. Introduction xxxi The role of the state is changing in all sectors of the economy. Privatesector participation in forest ownership, management and operations has been increasing (Landell-Mills and Ford, 1999). Substantial areas of forest, including plantations, have been transferred from state to private ownership or use in some form during the last ten years.

The amount and type of employment provided by plantations – whether private or state – depends upon the type of plantation being established and the level of associated downstream processing. The amount and type of employment (direct and downstream) provided by short rotation eucalyptus plantations established for wood chip production is likely to be lower than the amount provided by Pinus radiata plantations, which are pruned and thinned during their rotation and which are processed domestically into a wide range of products.
