Date of Defense 1998-09-11 Availability unrestricted AbstractThe study was undertaken in response to a
prediction by the Virginia Department of Forestry
(VDOF) that current harvest levels cannot be
sustained into the future given an increasing
growth to removal insufficiency throughout the
state of Virginia. The purpose of the study is to
determine how market signals, land and owner
characteristics, and owner preferences affect
landowners' decisions concerning their forestland.
Particular emphasis is placed on the effects of
absenteeism and land fragmentation on landowner
behavior. Such information is important for
targeting policies that will successfully maintain
commercial timber levels throughout the state.
