Description

This book chapter is written in French.

  • The authors provide several arguments for investing in tree plantations in central Africa where tropical wet and dry forests have been degraded and exploitation of forest resources is unsustainable. 
  • They give examples of benefits from native plantations in addition to exotic plantations.
  • The authors end by discussing the benefits tree plantations can have on society, and the need for more scientific research on native tree plantations in central Africa.
