Econometric and input-output methods are combined to assess the multiforest personal income impacts of timber harvesting activities on regional economies in Northern California. The importance of a combined assessment is demonstrated using data from the El Dorado and Shasta-Trinity national forests. Depending upon the timber harvest levels of other national forests in the area, projected changes in personal income resulting from a change in harvest level on either forest varied by as much as 27%.
