Forest owner cooperation around the world: Where, how, and why it succeeds

Abstract
The cooperation of private forest owners appears to be enjoying a renaissance of interest in the United States. The success of the national satellite conference on the subject is just one indication of new popularity, or a need to know more. Small, locally based efforts are springing up in a number of states, and a certain momentum has built in the last 5-10 years. As described by Rickenbach in an earlier chapter, this is apparently not the first time there has been interest like this in the United States. Groups of private landowners have experimented with different types of cooperation over the years, but they have not withstood the test of time. As a result, to some, this current interest may appear new. Private forest owners in other countries have cooperated for decades and continue to do so, however, and many examples have proven to be both durable and productive.
