Title: Changes in the non-Federal land base involving forestry in western Oregon, 1961-94.

Author: Zheng, Daolan; Alig, Ralph J.;

Publication Series: Research Paper (RP)

Description: Temporal and spatial analyses of land use changes on non-Federal lands in western Oregon between 1961 and 1994 were conducted. Two distinct changes in the region were a loss of forest lands and an increase in urban areas. Neither the rates of change over time nor the spatial distribution of land converted to urban use was evenly distributed in the region. The influence of socioeconomic factors, such as ownership, population growth, and personal income, as well as physical factors of land such as slope and location, on land use changes also was examined.

Keywords: Land use change, forestry, urban development, periodic surveys, temporal and spatial analyses
