Quantifying recreation: allocation of value to the collection and burning of firewood in Colorado


Dissertation Abstracts International, A Humanities and Social Sciences 46(6): p.1735
Quantifying recreation: allocation of value to the collection and burning of firewood in Colorado
This study identifies the importance of economic reasons for collecting and burning wood. It concludes that other values, such as need to be self-sufficient and independent, also rank highly. The importance of motivations other than direct economic concerns are sufficient to balance out, or 'trade-off' against, traditional costs that would otherwise pose economic problems for the wood user. Economic analysis concentrates on possible methods for assessing costs of burning wood.
