David Kittredge's current research interests focus on private woodland owner attitudes towards their land and the concept of an ecosystem-based approach to management. He has a growing interest in land protection techniques, human decision making, and the use of GIS in testing landowner attitudes towards thinking about their individual properties in the bigger picture. In general, he is interested in directing his research efforts towards ensuring a forested landscape that is capable of providing the myriad of important benefits to society into the future. As a Family Scholar, Kittredge developed a grant proposal to address considerations about families who own forests. The goal of this research is to improve understanding of family decision-making about land, to inform both outreach programming and public policy.
