Swedish nonindustrial private forestland (NIPF) owners have historically cooperated in associations to obtain market influence and negotiate improved prices with industrial purchasers of wood. This model of cooperation has succeeded for decades and provides insight to the newly emerging cadre of American NIPF owner cooperative groups. Although the Swedish model of cooperation focuses primarily on timber transactions and may not currently be applicable to an American NIPF owner audience with other interests, it is possible to speculate about potential ways this approach may be applied in the United States to achieve broader owner objectives, both through new organizations as well as existing conservation-based groups.
