    Description

    Household members who gather nontimber forest products (NTFP) in and around the Daniel Boone National Forest (DBNF) in eastern Kentucky were interviewed. Participants reported that a wide variety of NTFP were economically and culturally important to them. Forty-three species of plants were sold commercially and 120 were used in households. Ginseng (Panax quinquefolius L.) provided the greatest cash income. Social relationships were the primary means of access to private lands. Although the DBNF issues mandatory permits to gather specified products, permit records revealed that no permittee renewed his or her initial permit. This finding casts doubt on the effectiveness of this regulatory approach.
