Theoretical framework was set between the Pluralistic theory and the
Theory of Collective Action through which the group behaviour was analyzed.
Afterwards, some findings have been confronted with the Exchange theory
where better explanations for different behaviour group patterns were found.
Homogeneity and heterogeneity of groups were also defined by the Critic
Mass theory.

The main hypothesis was “readiness for establishing interests groups is
more pronounced in connection to activities which are financially more demanding
as forest roads construction”.

Results for all three countries (Croatia, Serbia and B-H) show that private
forest owners are interested in cooperation in construction and maintenance
of forest roads. Generally, private forest owners are a part of elderly rural population
with relatively small forest plots, mainly used for private needs (fuel
wood) and with low income. Private forests are fragmented, with average
plots smaller than 1 hectare. Most of the private forest owners expressed the
need for having interest associations from which they would expect support in
different aspects of forest management (Graph 2). The majority of forest
owners expressed interest in cooperation on construction and maintenance of
forest roads (Graph 1).

Results and conclusions presented in this paper provide useful information
for decision makers in government bodies responsible for rural development
with special consideration given to possibilities of private forest sector development.
