Sixty-three opinion leaders who are nonindustrial private forestland owners in eight rural South Carolina Piedmont counties were interviewed. The number of silvicultural practices used depended on the size of forestland ownership but not on present age, income, or management tenure of owners. The number of practices used was related positively to the owner's professed importance of the value of improving the forest for uses other than timber production. Neither the importance of cost in adopting a practice nor the ease of application were related statistically to silvicultural activity. South. J. Appl. For. 12(1):20-23.
