Costs of Environmental Constraints on Timber Harvesting and Regeneration
Abstract:A Method for measuring the cost of aesthetic and environmental constrains on timber harvesting and regeneration has been developed and empirically quantified for two western national forests. Between Earth Day (1969) and 1973, these constraints increased costs of timber production by 14 and 26 percent on the two forests.
