[Extract] This chapter examines the economic, political and social factors that have influenced small-scale forestry policy within Australia, as a background to discussion of the initiatives that have been developed and the forces driving forestry policy. A variety of initiatives to support small-scale forestry have been introduced in Australia in the last two decades. These have sometimes pursued competing objectives of commercial returns from timber and achievement of an array of environmental benefits arising from plantation forestry. Individual programs tend to have had a short life before being replaced by new initiatives, though in recent years there has been growing reliance on joint venture schemes.
