Description: Community-based forest management such as Community Forests Enterprises (CFEs), has potential to generate positive socio-environmental and economic outcomes. We performed a detailed survey of financial and production parameters for 30 of the approximately 992 CFEs in Mexico in order to estimate costs, income, profits and sustainability, but only two of these had harvest far above annual growth, and five of those were only a fraction more than annual growth.All of the 30 CFEs harvested more timber than they grew in 2011. suggesting issues with sustainability, but only two of these had harvest far above CFEs except one made profits in forest management and timber growing.

Keywords: Community-based forest management, natural forest timber harvesting, financial viability, benchmarking, sawmilling, tropical forestry,
