Participatory sustainable forest management recognizes the critical role farmers play in the success and failure of forest related projects. This study therefore focus on to identify factors, which delimitate farmer’s participation in forest project. A multi-stage sampling technique was conducted to collect data from 305 farmers in Dire Inchine district, west part of Oromiya national region state, Ethiopia. The study used binary probit model to identify determinate factors for farmer’s participation in HBSMTP. The result of the analysis indicated that sex of household head; marital status, training participation and land holding are factors that significantly determine farmer’s participation on forest projects. It appears that farmer’s awareness regarding forest projects be able to rise by giving equal chance for both sex on any extension interventions. Moreover, projects should give due attention on group dynamisms specially the active participation of marginalized farmers.
