About Unit

TOR Terms of reference

Forest operations technologies and systems for small-scale, nonindustrial forests. Links to location-specific problems of forests under fragmented owner-structure and/or special property rights arrangements (community allotments, common pool arrangements, etc.). Strong links to institutional arrangements (institutional economics, policy sciences).

The purpose of the IUFRO Unit 3.08.00 "Small-Scale Forestry" is

  • to exchange information on research problems, ongoing research efforts and research results related to the management of small-scale non-industrial private forest woodlots.

The history of the Unit started at the IUFRO XVIII World Congress in 1986 when a project group on "Small-Scale Forestry" was founded as a co-operative effort of the Divisions 3, 4 and 6. The main topics of the contributions presented at the meetings have dealt with economic and policy issues and also technical aspects of small-scale forestry.

The Unit is also publishing the Small-scale Forestry Journal which is now available in both electronic and print format from Springer.
