Forest tenant farming is a management model that consists in allocating a parcel of land (tenant farm) to an individual (tenant farmer) who agrees to manage and operate it in a sustainable manner. In exchange, the tenant farmer shares the land's usufruct with the landowner, for example, by paying cutting rights for each square meter of wood that is sold.
