Abstract:Measurement of attitudes and reactions to forest scenes can help in management decisions. Factor analysis techniques used in a case study are highly flexible and may meet specific needs of the manager. Basic differences in attitudes between forestry and nonforestry students concerning some aspects of forest management and reactions to forest scenes stemmed from varying technical training and experience. Nonforestry students responded more from an aesthetic-emotional value system. Study results indicate approaches for resolution of differences.
