family forest
 n.— «That complexity is why he and other Northeast foresters are increasingly being called on by private landowners to help them manage their wooded acreage, commonly called “family forests.” Many of the owners have civic motives, wanting to protect their forests and ensure that invasive plant species and insects do not get a foothold.» —“Efforts increase to preserve ‘family forests’” Hartford Courant Aug. 22, 2008.
