Abstract

Forests and woodland are integral parts of the natural scenery of Prince Edward Island (PEI), even though these forests have been and continue to be intensively altered. Private woodlot owners hold most of PEI’s forests (86%) and, collectively, they have a major impact on the state of this resource. To monitor changes in the sociodemographic profile of woodlot owners, as well as changes in their motivations, attitudes, and forest management activities, the PEI Department of Environment, Energy, and Forestry, Natural Resources Canada (Canadian Forest Service), and the PEI Model Forest Network Partnership collaborated on a survey of woodlot owners. Like an earlier survey in 2002, this survey was designed to assess and compare the situation of owners of small (1–10 acres), medium (11–50 acres), and large woodlots (51+ acres).
