Sažetak
Privatley-owned small-scale forest lands are important source of timber and ecosystem services both worldwide and in Croatia. Due to complex and diverse private forest owners objectives it is dificult to estimate potential wood supply from private forest lands. The present study was designed based on the theory that private forest owner decisions-making consists of internal cognitive processes which determines behavior in social situations. To understand how private forest owners behave we conducted a 1007 telephone interviews with randomly selected private forest owners where they were asked to asses 19 statements defning forest management (expressing their own opinion) using a five- point Likert scale. To mesure this variables we applied a confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) and tested whether the data fit a hypothesized measurement model based on theory and previous research. The LISREL 8.80 computer program was employed to conduct a confirmatory factor analysis and assess the three factor model. Several goodness-of-fit were used to determine how well the model fits to the data: Chi-squared test, the Root mean square error of approximation (RMSEA), the Comparative fit index (CFI), and the Standardised root mean square residual (SRMR). Results indicated a good fit between the model and the observed data. The model also serves as an important basis for further research of private forest owner management behavior.
