Family forest (10+ acres) ownership characteristics: West Virginia, 2018
Res. Note NRS-307. Madison, WI: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Northern Research Station. 2 p.
Data in this report come primarily from the USDA Forest Service, National Woodland Owner Survey (NWOS). The NWOS is implemented by the Forest Inventory and Analysis program to answer questions related to who owns the forests, why they own it, what they have done with it in the past, and what they intend to do with it in the future. The family forest ownership results are based on random sample of 178 family forest ownerships from West Virginia who participated in the NWOS in 2017 and 2018. The sampling errors provided below are important for assessing the reliability of the estimates. Additional results from the NWOS are available in USFS General Technical Report NRS-199 and can be accessed via the NWOS Dashboard and additional documentation and resources can be found on the NWOS website.
