The tremendous escalation in property values during the 1980s created new problems and issues in the education of southern New England NIPF owners. Among these was an increased need for education on estate planning and land protection techniques. This paper describes the approach taken by the University of Connecticut Cooperative Extension System and several partners to assess NIPF owners' knowledge levels and needs in these areas. It reports on the results of a mail survey to NIPFs and on the implications those results have for future research and educational efforts. The results and implications should be applicable in other states where high land values and land fragmentation are important issues. North. J. Appl. For. 11(2):47-52.
