Respondents were asked: From a forest products perspective, do you think the quality of the working forests in Vermont will improve or decline over the next decade? SCALE: -5 = Significant decline; 0 = Same; 5 = Significant improvement
Key things to note:
There is an almost equal spread of responses from -5 through to +5, however the majority of respondents feel that the quality of the working forests in Vermont will remain the same over the next decade.
It is interesting to note that while there is an almost equal spread of responses, there is more of a leaning towards the quality of the working forests improving over the next decade.
