Abstract or Summary
  • Forests of the Inland West have been experiencing forest health problems arising from over a hundred years of fire suppression, logging, grazing, and mismanagement. Rural communities, meanwhile, have seen escalating unemployment, an exodus of young families, and a dearth of middle-income jobs. The objectives of this thesis are to: 1) document knowledge and beliefs of forest stakeholders (loggers, industry workers, environmentalists, community developers, government agency workers) regarding forest health; 2) analyze the relationships between the community and the forest; and 3) contextualize rural stakeholders' views of forest health within the Healthy Forests Restoration Act (HR 1904) and other relevant forest health legislation. The forests and communities of this region are inextricably linked. While large-scale external forces, political and industrial, have long influenced these forests and communities, the dynamic nature of both forests and communities may call for some level of self-determination and place-based decision-making.
