Description: Incentives have played an important role in forestry accomplishments on private forest lands. Direct cost-share assistance programs, such as the Forestry Incentives Program, stimulate additional accomplishments in greater proportion than their actual inputs. Two States currently operate their own "incentives" programs. In addition, the Pacific Northwest Regional Commission has provided funding to supplement Federal cost-sharing in Washington, Oregon, and Idaho. In 1974 the Forestry Incentives Program treated 257,000 acres on 15,800 separate tracts of forest land. Tract size averaged better than 15 acres with more than three-fourths of the tracts treated exceeding a production capacity of 85 cubic feet/acre/year. Treatment costs are similar to those experienced on industrial and Federal lands.
