Rural Development and Land-Use Planning: A Forestry Perspective
Abstract:Land-use planning in rural areas has often treated forests as special problems. Tax laws, timber practice laws, planning regulations, and now statewide forestry planning have done little to integrate the forestland into the total planning process. Rural resistance to regulation and planning suggests a need to adapt city-born planning techniques and procedures to the informal institutions of rural areas.
