As long ago as the 1978 World Forestry congress the notion of the importance of 'Forests for People' has been a part of the formal discourse of foresters, even if many did little more than pay lip-service to the idea. While few have been prepared to go as far as Jack Westoby, who clearly elucidated a vision of people's forestry, the interrelationship of local people and trees has been a theme of steadily increasing importance ever since. This has signalled an important move away from forestry solely for the supply of raw material to industry and towards forestry as a provider of an essential resource necessary for the sustenance of local livelihoods.
