Description: In the past decade there has been an increase in the number of intrastate, state and regional programs aimed at encouraging forest resource based economic development in northeastern USA. These programs were aimed at deriving economic benefits from the large volume of mature forest resources in the region. The improvement of rura1 communities by creating job opportunities was seen as one of the primary benefits of the development programs, and they therefore focused attention on attracting firms and new manufacturing facilities. Most of these programs set the location of forest products firms as their target and seem to operate on the hypothesis that all forest products firms have the same general requirement when choosing a new location. The purpose of this study was twofold: first to test the hypothesis that different types of forest products firms have the same location requirements and second to test the hypothesis that location determinants within communities are the same irrespective of their size.
