Several surveys indicate that non-industrial private forest landowners own land for reasons other than timber production. These reasons include aesthetics, wildlife-related recreation, and other natural resource-based activities.The term multiple use in natural resource management is straightforward: it is the management of lands for more than one purpose. Inherently, this management approach is more complex and requires forest landowners to understand and assess each additional use for its compatibility with their long-term forest-management goals.

In this episode, we are joined by Dr. Adam Rhonke, Assistant Extension Professor at Mississippi State University, to walk us through the complexities and opportunities Multiple Use Management provides to forest landowners.
