Abstract

The majority of forest land, particularly east of the Mississippi, is privately held. Though critical to timber production, these holdings tend to be small, fragmented, and lie in multiple political jurisdictions. As a result, achieving regional forest health through forest preservation and ecosystem management can only be accomplished with the commitment of both the myriad landholders and the public at large. Potential solutions require a multidisciplinary approach, one which integrates social science with forest and natural resource sciences. This discussion introduces one possible approach to this problem. In this paper, the major stakeholders in the forest health question are identified as Nonindustrial Private Forest (NIPF) land holders, foresters, loggers, and citizens. Each of these group's views is discussed in relation to forest health. With these perspectives as a backdrop, preliminary ideas on the management of the fragmented land holdings for the benefit of regional forest health and sustainability - a goal that benefits all stakeholders - are presented. Data collected in Pennsylvania for both NIPF owners and the general population is used to support this work. Possible implications of these data are advanced.
