Temperate native forests in Chile: management, conservation and forest practices

This report discusses management, conservation and forest practices in Chile’s temperate
forests, and relates these to the situation in Tasmania’s forests. Temperate forests in both
places share a flora of Gondwanan origin and have many ecological attributes in common.
There are also similar threads in their management and conservation, both of which have
attracted a great deal of attention. Native forests are used for production of wood and other
products, and are also important for the protection of soil and water values and biodiversity.
