The country had a net annual change rate of -2.68% from 2010 to 2020. Among its forest resources, naturally regenerating forest covers about 7.4 million hectares and planted forest has around 0.6 million hectares.


The Forestry Administration Cantonment under each Provincial Department of Agriculture, Forestry, and Fisheries is responsible for overall management of forests and has the right to permit harvest quota of forest products and by-products (timber products and non-timber forest products) for local communities. The Forestry Administration Division (mainly 1 division in 1 district) under each Forestry Administration Cantonment is mandated in issuing permits for transporting timber and non-timber forest products (RGC, 2002).

Propriété forestière au Cambodge

Generally, all forest area is owned by state, in particular natural forest. The government can also allocate some part of forest area to local communities in the form of community forestry for management and customary uses of forest resources or grant for private companies. However, some forest area, so called private forest including forest or tree plantation, is privately owned by private company, individuals and local households.
