The aim of the study is directed to define medium-long term political strategies that focus on the qualitative and quantitative improvement of the Tuscany wood productions, at the same time guaranteeing a profitability to the forest workers , as well as revitalization of the quality woods productions. The proposal approach is based on a dynamic SWOT-AHP analysis: the criteria of the analysis have been examined considering three different situations: the existing one, medium and long term scenarios. This integrated application led to the definition of extremely efficacious strategic analyses. In this case the formalization through a dynamic model, able to quantify the relevance of each component, gives to the final beneficiaries an exhaustive tool for territorial planning.
