Description: In recent decades, the public's demand for non-timber products and services from forests has dramatically increased. To meet these diverse demands, particularly from public forests, has called for the critical evaluation of non-timber as well as timber benefits of forest resources. However, it has been a challenge to elicit and quantify public preferences for non-timber benefits because of the lack of an existing market structure. Moreover, social acceptability, which is much more than monetary values, has become an important issue in public forest management (Brunson 1996). In this paper, public references of stand attributes for loblolly pine (Pinus taeda L.) generated by four site preparation methods are sumeyed and analyzed. The effects of socioeconomic and demographic factors on user preferences are also examined and discussed. Another paper at this conference,presents an integrated analysis of these non-timber attributes with their timber outputs and sustainability indicators.
