TORRES-ROJO, Juan Manuel et al. Characteristics of particular forest producers in Mexico. Rev. Mex. Cienc. Agríc [online]. 2022, vol.13, n.5, pp.841-852.  Epub 10-Oct-2022. ISSN 2007-0934.

Globally, 74% of forest area is owned by governments. In Mexico, private property can be collective (colony, ejidos and communities) or individual (natural or juridical persons). Individual forest property is related to the concept of small property, defined by the Agrarian Law as an area of land owned by a single owner. The objective was to characterize privately owned forest properties (POFPs) in terms of their abundance, composition and uses, as well as the general characteristics of the type of forest management applied, based on the fusion of available data and some assumptions. The cover of series VI of INEGI was used to characterize the vegetation cover of individual properties. Land use change estimates were made by difference between the cover of series VI and series III. Timber and non-timber harvest volumes and areas are derived from the relational database developed in Microsoft Access®. The results show that there are about 769 000 ha in POFPs under timber exploitation of a potential of 9.4 Mha of primary and secondary vegetation forests located on private properties; forests that could be added to sustainable forest management. It was observed that only 8% of temperate forests on private properties are legally exploited, so there is a large area of temperate forests that could be incorporated into sustainable forest management. POFPs have an important participation in timber production, representing an important component in forest management at the national level.
