    he present work, establishes the basis for the implementation of commercial forest plantations through agroforestry systems as an alternative for sustainable production system. It proposes the standards for the design, establishment, and management of the main agroforestry systems in the region of Los Tuxtlas, Veracruz, which include within their components, cedro rojo (Cedrela odorata L.), cedro nogal (Juglans pyriformis Liebm.) and primavera (Roseodendron donnell-smithii (Rose) Miranda) in combination with the region’s main agricultural crops: corn, peanuts and coffee. The current development of forest plantations determines the agroforestry combinations as a feasible technical option. 60 Sistemas agroforestales con... Also, financial viability shows gains threefold for “cedro rojo” over “primavera”(US$ 160,000 vs US$50,000) and five times higher over “cedro nogal” (US$160,000 vs US$30,000). RIR, NPV and B/C financial indicators supported these figures. When comparing the profitability of agricultural crops for a similar period to that of agroforestry systems, the crops show negative figures; the combined establishment of the agricultural crops and trees produce a positive financial enhancement.
