Management planning can help NIPF owners identify goals and constraints, assess resource potentials, and prioritize management activities. Interestingly, however, only a small percent of owners nationwide have management plans. This note reports characteristics of Oregon NIPF owners, their ownerships, and their opinions and practices concerning management planning. Connections among various owner/ownership characteristics and management plans/planning are discussed, including ownership size and objectives, owner age, family involvement, plan development, obstacles to planning, and plan use, results, and updating. West J. Appl. For. 18(2):127–132.
