This chapter focuses on Fabricas Papeleras de Tuxtepec (FAPATUX) and Compañía Forestal de Oaxaca, the two timber companies that were awarded the majority of logging contracts for Oaxaca forests in 1956. This chapter discusses the introduction of industrial forestry in Oaxaca under FAPATUX, which, for its own benefit, exploited the communities for the forests. However, FAPATUX was met with resistance from local communities, which wanted to keep logging to themselves by introducing a logging system that was sponsored by the forest service. It presents the impact of logging on the ecology and environment along with the introduction of community forestry during the decline of the FAPATUX authority over logging in Oaxaca.

Keywords:   Fabricas Papeleras de Tuxtepec, Compañía Forestal de Oaxaca, industrial forestry, community forestry, logging system
