One of the most important resources in providing health for environment and people of the society is natural resources such as forests and grasslands. Forest as one of the natural resources and the environment is of very importance and to use and exploit from them requires certain plans and programs. In this paper, based on the latest information about regional accounts provinces that were published in by the Statistical Center of Iran, we study value added comparative advantage of forestry in provinces of Iran and compare the situation between provinces. So the relation between comparative advantage and economic development during the fourth development plan using Panel Data for all provinces are also studied. The results show that the provinces Mazandaran whit an index average of , Golestan whit , Sistan&Baluchestan and Chaharmahal&Bakhtiari whit and Ghilan whit , respectively have maximum value of the index during the fourth development plan. Estimation results also show that the relationship between value added comparative advantage of forestry and economic development is negative and significant, therefore for improve this relationship it is better that value added comparative advantage of forestry be more specific, to have good effect on the economic development.
