Lands owned by the pulp and paper industry in the South are important sources of outdoor recreation opportunities for the public. All the major southern pulp and paper companies permit public hunting, with certain restrictions on small portions of their total acreage. A limited number of companies require special permits or charge fees for hunting. About two-thirds of the companies manage wildlife to increase public hunting opportunities. Most companies permit recreational activities other than hunting. Some provide developed recreation sites and facilities independently and others provide them in cooperation with governmental agencies. The most important problem resulting from opening land to public use is that of property damage--fire, vandalism, littering, and road damage. Liability for personal injuries, public relations, property rights violations, and overcrowding are other important problems. Many companies believe public education to be the solution.
