United Kingdom[edit]

I don't think United Kingdom is a country. Farjad0322 (talk) 13:56, 24 August 2010 (UTC)

Scope[edit]

The ideal type of article to include in this navigation box is one entitled "Forestry in XXX". Such articles have been developed only for a relative handful of countries, however. For some countries, the most comprehensive current article on "Forestry in XXX" is the article on that country's Ministry of Forestry or equivalent. Though second-best, linking to those articles here is preferable, in my opinion, to not linking to any articles at all for that country. Other views?

Oppose. There is no substitute for Forestry in Kenya or Forestry in United States articles. An article about a state agency can not replace an article on an economic activity. They simply are different. The tempate should either be reverted to its original shape where no forestry agencies were included or the forestry agencies shuould be listed separately.
