Wisconsin private sector foresters (n = 92) were surveyed to learn their participation, experience, and/or interest in coordinating cross-boundary forestry practices by nonindustrial private forestland (NIPF) owners. Survey response was 78%. Two-thirds reported coordinating cross-boundary practices in the last 2 years. Their most recent practice was typically a timber sale between 41 and 160 ac for two NIPF owners. Despite interest in future cross-boundary forestry practices, the scale of existing practices is still large in comparison to typical NIPF ownerships. Reducing transaction costs also presents a major challenge. Ideas for addressing these challenges are explored.
Each regional journal of applied forestry focuses on research, practice, and techniques targeted to foresters and allied professionals in specific regions of the United States and Canada. The Northern Journal of Applied Forestry covers northeastern, midwestern, and boreal forests in the United States and Canada.
