Trust is an important factor in strengthening social capital. Many succeed was reached by community through collective action in small scale of agroforestry. However, it was challenging due to the low on social capital in communities. This study intended to analyze and explain how trust influence social capital to encourage collective action in agroforestry management. The study took place in 2 villages surrounding state forest. The area was selected based on disparities of sea level of villages. The method used structured interviews and in-depth interview with farmer group members who managed agroforestry. The study found that trust between farmer group members is high. However, trust as a source of social capital was not propelling collective action since institutional of farmer group is weak. Farmer group does not perform optimally and it can be initiated by increasing group activities, develop norms and networks so social capital would increase through the cooperation and collective action. Key words: trust, social capital, collective action, agroforestry, institutions
