The cooperatives selected had existed for more than 20 years, and they began as

pine resin cooperatives, later diversifying into other activities while continuing to tap

resin. The long tenure of the groups’ existence means that they have been at least

marginally successful, and they have also overcome periods of difficulties. These long

histories tell much about the challenges a forest cooperative faces in order to exist over

the long term. The experiences of each group in trying to integrate logging with resin

tapping are interesting and important for a number of reasons. First, the integration of

logging with resin tapping can potentially give more long-term benefits to communities

than either activity by itself (Johnson, 1998). Numerous development projects aimed at

strengthening forest cooperatives in Honduras have tried to integrate the two activities.
