Abstract

Natural forestland is a precious and unique resource within the United States. Forestland provides timber for construction and paper, a habitat for wildlife, and recreation areas and aesthetic value for visitors. Each of these uses is in potential conflict with the other, as well as with other uses such as conversion of forestland to farmland. These potential conflicts are further complicated when one considers that a large portion of forestland in the United States is privately owned and not subject to uniform federal control. In recognition of the value of private forestland, many states use various methods to control the use of this resource. This Article analyzes the various state legal instruments of environmental management that directly influence forested property in private ownership.
