The Role of Industrial Woodlands in Recreation
Abstract:A survey of 9 major organizations owning industrial forest land in Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont showed that these companies have made available almost 5 million acres of land for hunting and other recreational purposes. This is more than three times the area of publicly owned lands in the same states. These companies cooperate with state fish and game departments on wildlife habitat improvement programs and independently assist recreationists in various ways such as leasing campsites. The possibility that fees for such uses may become more general in the future is foreseen. The greatest oversight of the companies is failure to adequately inform the public of their policies and programs in this field.
