Description:
We found African American landowners are motivated by the collective struggle of African Americans to obtain and retain forestland. In contrast, White family forest landowners are moti-vated by personal identification with their forestland. For forest management profes-sionals, understanding family forest landowners’ conception of legacy and motiva-tions concerning intergenerational land transfer is valuable for planning the future of forestlands in Georgia, and by extension, across the Southern United States.
