Description

Continuing conversion of woodlands, greater restrictions on recreational access, and subdivision are trends seeming to have important implications for future recreation supply. Little is known about the possible effects of these trends on future recreational potential and use of private rural lands. This report presents the findings of a survey of landowners in Indiana, Georgia, and New York that was done to help clarify the effects of subdivision and access restrictions on recreational findings and use.
