DescriptionProbit analysis was used to estimate relationships between the probability that forest land was used for recreation and characteristics of the forest, owner, and surrounding community. Land held by owners with more formal education or those reared in large cities was more likely to be used for recreation while the opposite was true for land held by older owners. Correlations are drawn with other studies and policy implications are discussed briefly.
