Predictors of Family Forest Harvest Behavior in US Forest Service Ecoregion 212DOWNLOAD
Michigan State University, Forest Carbon and Climate Program (FCCP) has conducted plot-level statistical analysis with the following objectives:
1) identifying covariates that best predict harvest likelihood (HL) and harvest intensity (HI) on non-industrial private forestland in northern Michigan, Minnesota, and Wisconsin (Ecoregion 212) for the three forest type groups (FTGs) of interest (Aspen/ Birch [AB]; Maple/ Beech/Birch [MBB]; White/Red/Jack Pine [Pine]);
2) identifying appropriate subregions for donor pool selection; and
3) identifying tiers of plot-level carbon potential according to key indicators (to inform potential caps or funding tiers).
