Land Attributes and Land Allocation: Nonindustrial Forest Use in the Pacific Northwest
A land allocation model quantifies the influence of timber benefits, agricultural benefits, population, and land attributes on nonindustrial forestland allocation in the Pacific Northwest. The proportion of land in forest use only gradually changes and may be unresponsive to markets for land products or market-based policy instruments such as reforestation cost subsidies. Consequently, economic responses to policies may take place within forest rotations, which could change the mix of timber and nontimber benefits from private forests in favor of timber. If joint production of timber and nontimber benefits on private lands is to be considered a policy goal, new policy instruments may be needed. For. Sci. 40(3):558-575.
