PNIF Management: A Social-Psychological Study of Owners in Illinois
Abstract:The importance of the private nonindustrial forests (PNIFs) to the total forest resources of the country is significant. It is generally recognized, however, that timber production on most PNIFs has been lower than the land's potential, despite many state and federal assistance and incentive programs. A sample of PNIF owners in Illinois was surveyed to identify owner and woodland characteristics, owners' management goals, owner attitudes and beliefs related to timber production, influential social groups, and other relevent data. Timber production ranked low in owners' objectives. Results were studied to identify barriers and incentives which affect timber production and to determine policies and programs which might increase production. North J. Appl. For. 2:91-94, September 1985.
