Demand and Value of Firewood Permits as Determined by the Travel Cost Model

Buy Article:

$29.50 plus tax (Refund Policy)

The travel cost method is used to determine the value of trips to collect weekend firewood near the Denver-Boulder metropolitan area. The analysis indicated an average willingness to pay of $21.42 per cord for small live lodgepole pine (Pinus contorta) stumpage. This value, including a $10.00 per cord permit fee, is directly comparable to values commonly assigned to other goods and services, such as sawlogs or recreation, for resource allocation. In particular, values obtained through the residual value timber appraisal system are analogous to this figure. West. J. Appl. For. 2(2):48-50, April 1987.
