Timber Harvest and Recreation in Maine’s North Woods: Attitudes, Impacts, and Strategies for Coexistence
Problem Addressed: Rural Maine communities are trying to diversify their economies using recreation tourism, but there is a perceived conflict between tourism and the forest products industry.
Goal(s)/Objective(s): What are recreationists' attitudes toward logging, how does this affect recreation spending, and does education change these attitudes?
Key Findings: Some recreationists are more bothered by logging than others, logging may have a large effect on tourist spending, and education showed no effect on attitudes.
Recommendation: Areas without logging evidence are important if communities want to successfully attract tourist spending.
