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.
