Place-related concepts are factors in public involvement, conflict, recreation management, recreation displacement, landscape planning and design. This has captured the attention of researchers and managers. We posit that planning and management of public lands requires an understanding of what it is about the lands that people value and care about. In this paper we discuss multiple uses of the term "place" and the various place-related concepts that have emerged, and how these concepts are used to inform public land planning and management.

Keywords: planning, place-related concepts, management, public lands
