We apologise for the inconvenience. Please try again later.

A mail survey was conducted on nonindustrial private forest (NIPF) landowners' usage and assessment of services provided by assistance foresters in Alabama from 2000 to 2009. Overall, assistance foresters participated in 67% of all forest management activities. Consulting foresters provided nearly half (48%) of all the assistance. Industry foresters accounted for 17% of that assistance, in comparison with 22% in the 1990s. Public foresters provided most assistance services to landowners with low income and small acreage. The involvement of assistance foresters in management activities was correlated with landowner demographics and land characteristics, and the perception of assistance foresters was largely positive.
