    Description

    The forest economy in Chile is based on products from artificial reforestation efforts on approximately 2 million ha. From these, about 1.5 million ha (75%) are planted with Pinus radiata, 400,000 ha (20%) with species of Eucalyptus, principally E. globulus and E. nitens, and the rest (5%) composed by other species such as Pseudotsuga menziesii, Pinus ponderosa, Pinus contorta, and some hybrids of the genus Populus. Annual planting rates have varied from a maximum of 130,000 ha in 1992 to approximately 28,000 ha in 1999. This year (2000), the planting period is unfinished but is estimated to be similar to the previous year.
