    There are over 10 million family forest owners1 across the U.S. (Butler 2008). Collectively they control 264 million acres or 35% of the nation�fs forest land (Butler 2008; Figure 1); in some states, the percentage of family forest ownership can be over 75% (Figure 2). If the forestry and conservation community is interested in keeping forests as forests and increasing sustainable forest management, the attitudes and behaviors of this diverse and dynamic group of people and the factors that influence their decision�]making must be understood.
