DescriptionShort-rotation woody crops (SRWC) produce a variety of forest products useful to consumers such as pulp, energy biomass, and solid wood. The establishment and management of these crops before conversion into manufactured products are affected by several institutional factors. The first objective of this study was to identify and document institutional structures and programs that directly and indirectly affect a landowner’s decision to establish SRWC. The second objective was to compare these factors affecting SRWC across states in the South. The methods used to achieve these objectives utilized library and Internet searches as well as telephone interviews and site visits with state tax experts, state forestry officials, industry representatives, and university researchers. Preliminary results are presented.
