    Description

    This report summarizes results from the 2011-2013 National Woodland Owner Survey (NWOS) conducted by the U.S. Forest Service, Forest Inventory and Analysis program for family forest ownerships with forest holdings of 1-9 acres. Summaries are based on responses from 1,025 family ownerships with 1-9 acres of forest across 39 U.S. states. Survey summary tables are provided for the nation and three regions (North, South, and West) and are available at https://doi.org/10.2737/NRS-RB-114. To generate reliable statistics, only the 39 states with at least five respondents are included. The survey summary tables provide statistics on general forest ownership patterns, ownership characteristics, land characteristics, reasons for owning land, land ownership history, uses of the forest land, sources of information, concerns, the future of their land, and demographics.
