DescriptionResearch on timber management tendencies by nonindustrial private forest owners, while sometimes conflicting, provides useful information to support policy analyses of timber supply and investment behavior. Numerous research studies regarding tree planting, intermediate stand treatments, and timber harvesting are reviewed. Conclusive research findings include that: (1) cost sharing correlates with increased tree planting, (2) cost-shared plantings are typically not liquidated when support payments end, (3) technical assistance with harvesting tends to increase revenues for owners and results in residual timber stands that are in better condition, and (4) technical assistance is correlated with increased harvesting.
