A mail survey was conducted of West Virginia forestland owners who had a written forest stewardship plan on file for a minimum of five years. Along with sociodemographic information for each respondent, the survey requested information on the types of forest management activities prescribed by the plan and any forest management activities implemented since the plan was filed. Respondents were also asked to describe their levels of satisfaction or dissatisfaction with various aspects of the forest stewardship planning process.
