Find Forestry expertise in Trinidad and Tobago

Agriculture, forestry and fisheries contribute 0.3% to Trinidad and Tobago’s GDP (2008). Forested areas constitute about 44% of total land area (2005). The country has an established tradition of forestry management. Most of the timber production is derived from planted forests, the main species of which are teak and Caribbean pine. The Forestry Division arm of the Ministry of Agriculture, Land and Marine Resources licenses loggers and stipulates the volume of trees that can be cut. Trinidad and Tobago is, however, a net import of timber, sourcing most of its timber for processing from Guyana and Suriname.
