The problem of choice out of forest policy alternatives

Considered are tasks and objectives of forest policy in a context of radically changed ownership relationships, unstable economic growth and enormous harm inflicted by the "shadow" sector activity on the forest stock quality and use. A brief discussion is given to the forest policy of countries with different shares of private ownership of forests, namely Canada, Finland and the USA. The case of the USA with its wide gamut of forest ownership types is considered in a more detail, and its experience in stable forest use both in private and federal (public) forests is examined. In conclusion, the Russian approach to funding forest preservation measures is commented on.
