Description: In this chapter, we review recent empirical work related to the economics of nonindustrial forest landowner behavior, discuss emerging problems involving these landowners, and suggest topics for future research. Before the late 1980s, most work in this area was aimed at identifying variables affecting reforestation or harvesting decisions. Recently, researchers have studied a broader range of subjects, including the relationship between nontimber preferences and decisions, such as bequests, examination of the influence of type of landowner on decisionmaking, and use of landowner-level responses in spatial landscape models. We propose that future research characterize reservation prices for various activities, evaluate the extent to which a landowner's behavior influences that of adjacent landowners, investigate the substitution between various types of decisions, and integrate landowner-level models into spatial landscape models.
