Taiwan plain landscape afforestation program (PLAP) is a government subsidy program attempt to change plain area landscape with forest since 2002. But its effectiveness is perhaps doubtful. In this study, we applied survey techniques to explore the causes that affect the effectiveness of the PLAP in a low-developed county, Taitung County where is situated at southeastern Taiwan. Consequently, We(we) have found the rate of willingness of the sampling landowners to participate the PLAP is just 6% (651 samples) in first year promotion. After analyzed the participating motivations of the landowners expressed, we have formulated the decision processes model of a landowner participate the PLAP and distinguished there are four causes affect the responses of the landowners to participate it. They are: (1) Program promotion [Knowledge], (2) Benefit [Attraction], (3) Opportunity cost [Repulsion], and (4) Program requirement [Threshold]. Furthermore, we tested the significance of four categories independent variable for the landowner’s willingness of participate the PLAP. We have found some useful suggestions to proceed the PLAP in the future. (1) Advance the promotion techniques and target the effective channels to contact the agricultural landowners, (2) Make planting tree business to be profitable by developing new purposes of trees or woods, (3) Replace the nationwide policy instead of specific area policy in the PLAP in order to improve the effectiveness.
