Abstract:The Northeast is classified into homogeneous sub-areas based upon a variety of physical, economic, and demographic variables postulated to reflect conditions underlying timber-based activity in the region. These environments in which timber exists were differentiated so that subsequent inquiry into regional problems regarding timber-resource-based activity could be made area-specific. Factor and cluster analyses provided an efficient and objective procedure for classifying this extensive and complex region. Forest Sci. 19:180-189.
