Resumen: "Many studies have considered community-based forestry enterprises to be the best option for development of rural Mexican communities with forests. While some of Mexico’s rural communities with forests receive significant economic and social benefits from having a community forestry enterprise, the majority have not formed such enterprises. The purpose of this article is to identify and
describe factors limiting the formation of community forestry enterprise in rural communities with temperate forests
in the Southern Mixteca region of Oaxaca, Mexico. The study involved fieldwork, surveys applied to Community
Board members, and maps developed from satellite images in order to calculate the forested surface area. It was found that the majority of Southern Mixteca communities lack the natural and social conditions necessary for developing community forestry enterprise"
