The introduction of tree species is important as they are an opportunity for wood production and alternatives for more adapted species, but may cause loss of biodiversity and disrupt natural ecosystems.
Today, three private companies own over half of the planted forests in Chile, resulting in an industry concentration that clearly differs from the path followed by other neighbouring countries which are equally dependant on planted forests including exotic species, such as the state policy of Uruguay.

Adopting a holistic and multi-actor approach, this 4-year project funded by EU H2020 aims to develop a full panel of scientific knowledge and practical solutions for the management of emerging native and non-native pests and pathogens threatening European forests.
Transnational projects such as PLURIFOR or COOPEREM join efforts to exchange solutions and coordinate the management of risks and threats to forests, whilst at the same time preparing the leaders for a better job in an international team.
When Honduras decided to negotiate a timber trade deal with the EU in 2013, few imagined the profound effect of simply having forest stakeholders come together to talk about timber-related issues.
