    As awareness and concern regarding the environmental consequences of forest practices have increased, new or amended forest regulations have been placed on nonindustrial private forestlands (NIPF) in the Pacific Northwest (Salazar and Cubbage 1990; Quigley 1992). Debates over whether forest practice regulations are providing public benefits or preventing public harm are intensifying (Ellefson et al. 1995), and forest landowners are finding their bundle of rights diminished by stricter forest practices legislation. Against this backdrop, NIPF harvest levels in the region have more than doubled since 1976 (Haynes et al. 1995). Some people speculate, based mostly on anecdotal evidence, that anticipation of future regulation has spurred the accelerating harvests (Plummer 1993).
