Title: Stakeholders' Perceptions of Parcelization in Wisconsin's Northwoods

Author: Rickenbach, Mark G.; Gobster, Paul H.;

Date: 2003

Source: Journal of Forestry 101(6):18-23

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: Parcelization, the process by which relatively large forest ownerships become subdivided into smaller ones, is often related to changes in ownership and can bring changes to the use of the land. Landowners, resource professionals, and others interested in Wisconsin's Northwoods were asked their views on parcelization in a series of stakeholder forums. We analyzed their statements through the lens of forest sustainability with its ecological, economic, and social dimensions. The analysis shows how sustainability might be used to structure future research and discourse within focal communities to foster fuller considerations of landscape and land use change.

Keywords: land use, nonindustrial private forestland, public perceptions, sustainability
