Tutorial for independent assessment of small forest properties
A tutorial, structured as a form and checklist, will be developed to allow all smallholders and other non professional forest workers or owners to correctly diagnose their forest in what concerns: (1) biodiversity; (2) trees and plantation’s health; (3) soil health; (4) water availability and quality; (5) trees’ growth and productivity; (6) timber-products income; (7) non-timber products potential income; (8) social contributions (jobs, indirect contributions, tourism, etc.); (9) threats; among other relevant matters.
