DescriptionData provided by 317 nonindustrial private forest owners suggest that in the East Texas region, future timber sellers will tend to exhibit the following characteristics: (1) their forest holdings will be 100 or more acres in size; (2) they will have owned forest land for 10 or more years; (3) they will live in towns or cities, not on their forest properties; (4) they will be primarily interested in the income-producing potential as opposed to consumptive use of their woodlands; (5) they will be farmers and ranchers or business and professional people; (6) they will have completed at least some college; and (7) their incomes will exceed $30,000 per year.
