    Description

    Conjoint and other techniques were used to examine private forest-land owner's willingness to manage for timber and nontimber objectives. The objectives were to: maintain apple trees to benefit wildlife, protect rare ferns to enhance aesthetics and biodiversity, improve recreational trails, and harvest timber. Ecological objectives were found to be more important than objectives related to use. Acceptable trade-offs (relative values) are estimated among the various objectives and with respect to management costs. A mail survey sent to 1,250 nonindustrial private forest-land owners in Franklin County, Massachusetts, provides the basis for the analyses.
