Landowner Interest in Forestry Assistance Programs in East Texas
Abstract:Nonindustrial private forest owners in east Texas were sampled and asked to indicate their interest in each of ten assistance programs. Most popular were proposals for requiring loggers to post a performance bond and providing management assistance aimed at nontimber as well as timber products. Least popular were proposals for forming cooperatives and initiating long-term leases. Well-educated business and professional people, who had above average incomes and lived in urban areas away from their properties, were found to be most interested in forestry assistance.
