Urban owners of forests in western Oregon Public Deposited

http://ir.library.oregonstate.edu/concern/technical_reports/cv43nz11h

Urbanites who own forest land belong to a larger category of owners often referred to as small woodland owners. As a group, small woodland owners have been the subject of much investigation. Little research, however, has focused specifically on urban-dwelling owners who, as defined by the Census Bureau, live in communities of 2,500 persons or more and, for the most part, work at occupations unrelated to forest land ownership. What are their reasons for owning forest land? How are they using their land now, and what plans do they have for the future? This publication reports findings of a study undertaken to answer these questions. The report gives a profile of characteristics of urban-dwelling owners and their forest ownerships. Sources for names and addresses of these owners are discussed as well as reasons for stratifying ownerships by size class for more effective planning and delivery of programs in forestry education. We hope that personnel in extension and service forestry who work with management problems of small woodland owners will find information in this report helpful in developing programs in educational and technical assistance that better meet needs of their urban clientele.
