Determinants of Reforestation Behavior Among Southern Landowners
Accurate models of reforestation behavior are important to projecting the nation's softwood timber supplies and deciding on appropriate public responses, if any, to encourage tree planting. Logistical regression models of the reforestation behavior of southern landowners show the probability of actively regenerating pine on cutover timberlands to be a function of market and policy influences, provided the landowners are in a financial position to consider investments, are not constrained by competing land management objectives, and are informed about reforestation opportunities. Land-owners are most sensitive to reforestation costs, cost-sharing, income limitations, and technical assistance. For. Sci. 33(3):654-667.
