Abstract

Forests and woodland are integral to the natural scenery of Prince Edward Island (PEI). Some 16 000 private woodlot owners control 87% of PEI's forests, and have a major impact on the state of the forest resource. This report presents the results of a survey of PEI private woodlot owners that was conducted to elicit their beliefs, motivations, and attitudes, and to understand their role in forest management decisions. The survey was a collaborative effort of the PEI Department of Agriculture and Forestry, the University of New Brunswick, and Natural Resources Canada - Canadian Forest Service. It was sent to a sample of woodlot owners stratified according to three sizes of private woodlots: small (1-10 acres), medium (11-50 acres), and large (51 acres or more).
