A Ten-Point Guide to Reaching Non-Joiner NIPFs in the Eastern U.S.
Jan 10, 2002

In 2001 the Institute conducted a research project to better understand drivers of forest fragmentation and conversion from non-industrial private forestland (NIPF) owners in the eastern hardwood forests of the US.

In particular, we wished to focus on "non-joiner" NIPFs -- those forestland owners outside of the traditional information loop. Non-joiner NIPFs

  • do not belong to forest industry or woodlot owner associations;
  • only periodically rely on technical assistance advisory services;
  • manage their own forestlands.
This guide is intended to help "impact groups" (groups who influence NIPF decisions, including state coordinators, professional foresters, SAF chairs, and smart growth groups) to effectively reach out to non-joiner NIPFs in their regions. Download pdf .
