Louisiana forest landowners are asked to participate in the 2020 Costs and Trends of Southern Forestry Practices Survey with Auburn University School of Forestry and Wildlife Sciences.
The survey gives forest landowners in the South a chance to participate in the survey that has been ongoing since 1950. The questionnaire allows researchers to better understand the cost of current forestry practices. However, this is a long-term study that also gives researchers a picture of how costs and management have changed over time, according to the questionnaire press release, and what influenced those changes.
"The responses form this survey are important in shaping the narrative of forestry practices in the South and influencing policy decisions that affect private forest landowners," according to the release.
The release stated that a decline in participation in the past has led the university to make the questionnaire available online and has been streamlined from past surveys. The estimated time to fill it out is about 45 minutes, depending on the availability of a landowner's information.
