Title: Public Preferences for Timber Harvesting on Private Forest Land Purchased for Public Ownership in Maine

Author: Boyle, Kevin J.; Teisl, Mario F.;

Date: 1999

Source: Maine Agricultural and Forest Experiment Station, Miscellaneous Report 414, May 1999

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: Public concern over the use, the management, and the protection of forests in Maine and throughout the United States has grown rapidly over the last two decades. Decisions regarding where, when, and how to cut timber are no longer purely silvicultural decisionlS made by forest managers, but are increasingly subject to public scrutiny, debate, regulation, and litigation. Public participation in forest management decisions on publicly owned forest lands, such as National Forests, is expected because these forests are owned by the citizens of the U.S., and participation in the planning process is authorized by the Multiple Use Sustained Yield Act of 1960, the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, and the National Forest Management Act of 1976. In contrast, public involvement in private forest management decisions has traditionally relied on policy tools including education, financial and tax assistance, and regulations to ensure regeneration of forests and to minimize undesirable environmental effects.
