Perceptions of Change in the US Pacific Northwest Forest Practices on Certified and Noncertified Holdings
Abstract:A mail survey of certified and noncertified forest managing entities (public agencies, forest industry, and nonindustrial private forest owners) in the US Pacific Northwest region (PNW) was conducted to better understand forest practitioners' perceptions related to the degree of change in forest practices. The results of this study reveal that forest managers perceive relatively small changes in practices in the US PNW, regardless of the certification standard used, although the degrees of change differed for public, forest industry, and nonindustrial private forest owners. This conclusion applies to both certified and noncertified holdings.
