    Description

    An exploratory and descriptive study of recreational leasing of industrial forestlands in the state of New York was conducted to better understand lease programs and the lessees involved in these programs. During the summer of 1999, thirteen companies were sent mail surveys and 9 responded (response rate of 69%). Based on information provided by the companies, 540 industrial forestland leaseholders were sent mail surveys and 362 leaseholders responded (deliverable response rate of 68%). Leased forestlands for outdoor recreation accounted for nearly 75% of the total forestland area owned and managed by the companies who responded to the survey. General industrial forest company and leaseholder characteristics were described and specific relationships were tested. Industrial forest managers can use this type of information to better manage their lands for producing quality outdoor recreation experiences in addition to traditional commercial forest products.
