Downloadable (with restrictions)! Preferential property tax treatment of forested land is part of legislative policy in all 50 states. West Virginia's Managed Timberland (Managed Timberland) is designed to retain private forest land in forested use. In West Virginia, although private forest land owners hold million acres of forest land (83% of forest land), Managed Timberland enrolled.

      NIPF landowners hold a significant portion of West Virginia forested lands. The policy objective of Managed Timberland is retention of quality forest lands in the state. Recent West Virginia Supreme Court decisions imply that there is political pressure toward development, especially in the eastern panhandle region (West Virginia Supreme Court. Figure 5.

Majority (80%) of the NIPF landowners reside in West Virginia while 19% of the landowners were absentee landowners (Figure 6).

    A survey was carried out in to the nonindustrial private forest landowners of West Virginia to examine the factors affecting their forest management decisions. that tract size and total. Industrial Private Forest (NIPF) landowners control the majority of this commodity within the state and throughout the country. Development, fragmentation and parcelization are growing threats to landscape books and professional sources were utilized to determine the root causes for the not living in West Virginia.

Forest landowner activities change over the lifespan of the forest and ownership cycle. Patterns of change emerge which suggest the evolving nature of forest landownership and Non-industrial Private Forest (NIPF) landowners’ interest in their land. The objective of this study was to examine trends in NIPF landowners’ distribution of forestry expenses in their management activities over time.

For example, in West Virginia, NIPF landowners control 76% of the state's forestland (Birch, ). More thanNIPF landowners own 9, acres of the 12 million acres of forestland in the state (USDA Forest Service, ) and the number of NIPF landowners continue to increase.

West Virginia therefore plays an important role in. Since NIPF landowners are so diverse, there is a need to better understand the determinants of their decisions so that policies could be in place to motivate them.
