This report describes the experience and responses of several communities in northern New Hampshire when their local forestland became the object of broad public interest.

He describes how new relationships among environmental groups, industrial forest owners, local residents, and government agencies have gradually evolved based upon the shared desire to preserve Umbagog’s natural wealth and the lifeways it supports.
