Comparing Estimated Wilderness Costs among National Forests
Wilderness costs can be extremely variable among national forests. For example, the Willamette (in Oregon) has 471,245 fewer acres suitable for wilderness and a maximum marginal cost per acre of wilderness 820 times greater than on the Beaverhead (in Montana). Marginal cost curves developed from linear programming models can depict relative wilderness costs among forests and thus assist society in comparing economic trade-offs, making wilderness selections cost-effective, and isolating those forests where wilderness decisions have greatest impact.
