Abstract The purpose of the workshop was to identify major operational and ecological considerations needed to successfully conduct large-scale reforestation projects throughout the forested regions of the world where, by human effort, approximately 100,000 hectares or more of new forests have been established or are planned annually for about a decade in an individual country or region. Operational and ecological considerations and case studies were discussed. Four points of importance surfaced: (1) a clear determination of the amount of land available for reforestation throughout the world; (2) economically speaking, reforestation does require money investments; (3) social and political considerations must be emphasized; and (4) large-scale reforestation projects mean more than just contiguous block plantings, they can include many small, dispersed plantings, also. Forest ecosystems play a pivotal role in the global carbon cycle. This suggests that forests are a primary control point in the cycle and that through management, they can possibly contribute to increased carbon conservation and sequestration to offset a part of the CO2 buildup in the atmosphere. As a major management tool, large-scale reforestation would likely make a significant contribution.
