Forest Resource Management Plans: Importance of Plan Components to Nonindustrial Private Forest Landowners in South Carolina
Abstract:This study is based on a survey of 100 South Carolina nonindustrial private forest (NIPF) landowners who participated in the Forest Stewardship Program in 1995-1996. The purpose of the study was to determine which components in a management plan are most important to NIPF landowners. Most important are the landowners' objectives, followed by individual stand descriptions and a schedule of prescribed activities. Data are summarized by type of preparer (government, consultant, or industry) and by timber or nontimber primary management objective. South. J. Appl. For. 21(4):164-167.
