2019 Webinar: Understanding family forest landowners in the Lake States
Across the United States, family forest landowners control more forests than any other ownership group. This is particularly evident in the Lake States where family forest landowners own and make decisions on approximately 25 million acres of forests. The activities and reasons for owning forests range considerably across this ownership group, from forest owners that are actively engaged in the management of their woods to those that conduct little if any management. This webinar will discuss findings from the National Woodland Owner Survey and explore key behaviors and demographics about this important ownership group in the Lake States.
