Psychophysical models of scenic beauty for an all-aged ponderosa pine area were combined with estimates of management costs and physical output values to indicate more efficient input combinations for production of scenic beauty. Also, in combination with biophysical models, the scenic beauty models were used to examine tradeoffs between scenic beauty and net present worth from timber, forage, and water yields. These examples demonstrate the use, as well as important limitations, of scenic beauty models in a multiple use context. For. Sci. 33(2):394-410.
