Abstract

Social marketing tools and approaches were used to develop a Call Before You Cut campaign for six states in the Central Hardwoods Region (Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Missouri, Ohio, West Virginia). The campaign was developed from research on landowner values, objectives, and behavior, based on National Woodland Owner Survey data and landowner focus groups, and discussions with natural resource professionals in the region. The result was a strategically focused set of publicity materials, a Web site, and an informational packet common to all six states and designed to attract the attention of and be useful to the landowners most likely to cut trees without professional advice.
