I do think that a national government does have a key role in forest management in the form of providing a long term capital creation system not unlike we use for farmland and urban housing.
The protocol needs to be super simple. In exchange for providing labor funding for forest grooming, the government receives half of all harvested value from the land so groomed. The actual cut may be centuries later as well. However it is also true that grooming will produce a steady stream of wood fiber every year as likely in a tropical forest as well as sharply increase wood fiber productivity of the forest. this should even become sustainable as well.
Add in the additional benefit of forest products in the form of fruits and much more can be gained. It was no accident that native forests became heavy in chestnuts in North America...
