Comprehensive Analysis of Public Forestry Project and Program Alternatives
Abstract:Financial analysis has not been widely used in public forest management planning in the United States because its restricted point of view frequently is inappropriate. This article suggests a system of comprehensive analysis, which identifies seven different characteristics of forestry project and program alternatives, as an improved basis for decision-making. The seven collateral criteria, and the analysis procedure, are discussed.
