Attitudes towards trees : a case study in the New Zealand eastern high country
Attitudes of stakeholders towards the role and management of trees and plantations in the New Zealand eastern high country were surveyed in a series of depth interviews in 1988-89. Analysis of the sample of 58 respondents revealed seven distinctive ways of thinking about trees and plantations. Each was characterised by different perceptions of the appropriate role of trees and plantations, and different beliefs about responsibilities for management.
