In terms of participation in forestry, political parties are one of the important stakeholders. While forestry policy
is formed in Turkey, political parties, particularly the parties in power, have important effects on it. Approaching
ofpolitical parties to forestry can be learned from declarations published by them before elections. Election
declaration is an important source to evaluate the similarities and differences between opinions of different
parties about forestry.
This study examines the election declarations published by 14 different parties joined the election of 22nd June
2007. The findings are analyzed and evaluated under eight different headlines. Moreover, the declarations of top
three parties (AKP, CHP and MHP) are compared with previous declarations published in 2002 elections.
The study shows that Turkish political parties do not consider forestry in their declarations, and their opinions
about forestry are not based on consistent politics.
