Abstract
"There are several main points to be established in what follows. First, forestry is simply another possible form of land use; it is no different--in most dimensions--from other ways in which man makes use of plants for material sustenance. Second, to the extent that forestry is different, that difference is predominantly institutional in nature rather than technical. That is, the aspect which differentiates forestry from many conventional agricultural projects is that forestry often occurs on lands over which property rights are of a different nature than they are in cultivated lands. This different institutional structure introduces an interesting dimension into the formulation, design, evaluation, implementation and operation of a forestry program."
