Comparing benefits to costs is basic to decision-making. However, in forestry activities, particularly those involving multiple use, evaluating benefits is difficult. The break-even benefit/cost model eases the problem somewhat: it calculates the minimum benefit required for the project to just break even on a discounted basis. Examples are shown for pest control and soil erosion control. North. J. Appl. For. 3:14-16, Mar. 1986.
