DescriptionImproving Missouri's forest lands depend on private landowners. Cluster analysis was used to combine nonindustrial private forest landowners with similar interests based on attitudinal information gathered from a mail questionnaire to forest landowners in Macon County, MO. Clusters were analyzed based on objective data gathered in the questionnaire. Seven types of forest landowners were identified: absentee hunter, agrarian/steward, residential landowner, agrarian/economic, wildlife manager, uncertain landowner, and next generation landowner. Outreach efforts are discussed relative to potential impact and use of various methods for each of the seven clusters.
