DescriptionThe fate of the nation's forests lies primarily in the hands of the people who own and manage (or do not manage) the land. Any report that claims to analyze forest resources must consider not only the biophysical characteristics of the forests, but also the social context in which they exist. It is ultimately landowners, within the social constraints imposed by society who make the decisions that lead to parcellation, fragmentation, timber harvesting, recreational opportunities, and many other outcomes.
