The Recreational Value of the Forestry Commission Estate in Great Britain: A Clawson-Snetsch Travel Cost Analysis
Open-access recreation benefits of forests are shown to be much larger than previously thought by the National Audit Office. Forecasts were classified by tree and recreational characteristics into different classes, and a random sample of visitors interviewed at sites within each cluster. A zonal travel cost model was used to estimate demand for forest recreation. Consumer surplus per visit varied significantly by type of forest, as did total visitor numbers. The effect of the inclusion of consumer surplus from recreation on the internal rate of return of timber production is variable. It is negligible for many areas of forestry.
