A procedure for predicting timber harvest occurrence on nonindustrial private forests correctly predicted harvests on 87% of the properties used for model development, and 71% of the properties in a separately collected data set. The procedure requires limited, easily obtained data and little computation, yet it approximates logistic regression analysis. The study utilized historical timber harvest data on 84 properties in the Kickapoo River watershed of Vernon County, Wisconsin. Tract size and farm status was significantly related to timber harvest occurrence on the properties studied; owner residency was not. The procedure can help field foresters identify potential users of timber harvest assistance. North. J. Appl. For. 4:152-154, Sept. 1987.
