    Description

    Public agencies may at times provide education, technical help, tax incentives, or other forms of aid to private landowners to help them enhance their land in ways that benefit the public. Since public funds are used to pay these expenses, it is important that program goals be correlated with underlying public values and concerns. We used a conjoint ranking survey to assess public preferences and acceptable tradeoffs with respect to programs that enhance timber quality and growth, promote public recreational opportunities, improve wildlife habitats, and the costs associated with these programs. The survey included personal interviews in which participants were asked to complete a series of demographic and attitudinal questions. Results will provide insight into public views on landowner and societal rights and responsibilities regarding private lands and relative values regarding forest based benefits on private lands.
