Abstract

Land is a widespread natural resource and commonly used by humans. It is commonly used distributed for agriculture, forestry, urbanization, resting, transportation and settling. Land is not a renewable resource and is under the threat of erosion, polluting and salinization because of agricultural irrigations. In consequence of increasing population and industrialization wetlands, agricultural lands and forests are used for settlement and industrial areas. Maximizing utility of resources is an essential issue for environmental economics. Thus maximizing utility of land uses is an essential issue for land using strategies. When viewed from this aspect it is obvious that land areas of a country are shared by public (state) and private sectors. In public areas forest areas have an important share.There are enormous amount of areas which are owned by state but they are waiting idle. In this paper after analyzing present administrations we will make a suggestion. We will focus on assigning these idle areas to private sector for forestry use. It is hoped that this assignment will contribute the problems of unemployment, income, cleaning the atmosphere, preventing erosion and input for industrial production. Despite the subsidies, private foresting is inadequate. We will suggest publicizing investors by projecting the proper lands, subsidizing and presenting economic potentials of these areas.
