    Description

    On-site reactions of groups of viewers to six timber harvesting procedures were measured by direct and indirect measuring techniques. Using the direct technique, groups recorded their overall impressions of harvested tracts on five-point scales ranging from very favorable to very unfavorable. For the indirect technique, semantic differential procedures were used. Factor scores developed from the evaluative factor of the semantic differential reactions were highly correlated with overall impression scores for the harvested tracts. In addition to validating the direct reactions, semantic differential data contributed to a partial explanation of why some tracts were rated more favorably than others.
