Costs and benefits of forest conservation: regional and local comparisons in Eastern Finland


Costs and benefits of forest conservation: regional and local comparisons in Eastern Finland



Journal of Forest Economics 8(2): 131-150



ISSN/ISBN: 1104-6899

DOI: 10.1078/1104-6899-00008

In addition to environmental interests vs. timber production, debates on forest conservation have typically dealt with nationwide vs. local and regional interests. While most previous studies have focused on the nationwide perspective, this paper considers the benefits and costs of existing conservation areas from the regional and local point of view. The non-market benefits of conservation are measured by means of contingent valuation.
