Abstract

For a community or group investigating the appropriateness of a cooperative as a means for organizing local landowners to accomplish forest management or marketing objectives, it is useful to hear about the experiences of other communities or cooperatives. For the conference, we put together a series of video case studies, summarizing the stories of four forest landowner cooperatives as told by cooperative members or potential members. A DVD of the video case studies is included with this report. What follows is a brief description of each cooperative, based on the perceptions and insights of the people we interviewed. Also included is an update on progress made by the cooperative since the interviews were conducted in the summer and early fall of 2003.
