While federal and state incentive programs may be helpful in increasing future timber supplies, desired increases can be achieved only if forest management practices are made routine on small forest land ownerships and if greater consideration is given to the multiple goals of the nonindustrial private forest landowners. Research aimed at determining the physical tradeoffs between forest uses is needed so that intensive management practices can be tailored to landowner goals. Until such tradeoff information is available, unevenaged forest management is probably the most acceptable and compatible interim recommendation.
