Recent years have seen a rapid growth of interest in farm, community and other small-scale forestry activities. Small-scale private forestry has social benefits which, together with the withdrawal of forest resources from the timber industry, are considered a strong imperative for government intervention to promote free tree planting. Sustainable Small-scale Forestry addresses a broad spectrum of important social, economic and policy issues associated with farm forestry which should benefit production and the environment. The volume presents extensive research in both tropical and temperate regions such as Australia, Asia, America and Europe. The importance of these countries exchanging experiences in farm forestry and assistance measures is highlighted. Edited by members of the Cooperative Research Centre for Tropical Rainforest Ecology and Management, this volume will be essential reading for those in involved with social and economic issues, forest policy, natural and land resource economics, and environmental management. Practitioners, researchers and students of forestry and vegetation management will also find the book to be an indispensable source of reference.

MEDIA REVIEWS
`The authors have succeeded in their aim of producing a source of reference for practitioners, researchers and students of forestry and vegetation management.' -- Peter Eckersley, The Australian Journal of Agricultural and Resource Economics
`. . . this is a neat introduction to contemporary small-scale forestry for students and practitioners alike. I recommend it.' -- Anitra Nelson, Australian Journal of Environmental Management
`The book provides a comprehensive coverage of the key issues relating to non-industrial forestry. Its case studies provide a useful insight into how small-scale forestry is treated in other countries. The case studies emphasise the broad range of systems and the broad application of small-scale forestry as well as the need for a broad policy approach to deal with small-scale forestry systems. The book fills an important gap in the available literature on non-industrial private and community forestry, identifying the multi-use values of small-scale forestry and the non-wood benefits it provides. It offers a range of tools for assessing the economic performance of small-scale forestry, and calculating the non-wood benefits. The book provides a useful reference for researchers with an interest in natural resource management and a useful text for students.' -- Peter Grist, Economic Analysis and Policy
