  • Abstract in English : To ensure the effective planning and management of future landscapes, it is necessary to understand how people perceive their environment. The objectives of the present study were to develop and test an evaluation method to be used in classifying visual qualities of select native planted forests and other vegetation groups in Israel, and to rate the degree of visual preference by selected groups of uses for these vegetation groups. Landscapes with wooden species forming a more or less open structure were preferred to those with a block field of vision.
