This paper investigates the socioeconomic factors that determine the performance of community forestry projects in Uganda. The socioeconomic analysis was done to evaluate the relationship between community participation and the performance of the community forestry project. The results revealed that the major socioeconomic factors include literacy, major occupation, farm size, annual gross household income, private forest holdings, accessibility to the plantation sites, high number of economically active members in the family, and households without off-farm earning members.
