Regional economic implications of the mountain pine beetle infestation in the Northern Interior Forest Region of British Columbia by M. N Patriquin( Book )

6 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 69 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report investigates the regional economic impacts resulting from the current mountain pine beetle infestation in the Northern Interior Forest Region of British Columbia. Two study areas within the Region are examined: the Nadina Forest District, consisting of the Morice Timber Supply Area and the Lakes Timber Supply Area; and the Prince George Timber Supply Area (also known as the McGregor Model Forest). Baseline general equilibrium economic databases are constructed for each region using primary & secondary sources. The databases are then used in the construction of a computable general equilibrium model for each region in order to simulate future economic indicator levels under different scenarios related to the impact of the beetle on timber supply. The potential offsetting impacts of increased agricultural activity & tourism are also examined

A synthesis of the economic efficiency of beetle-proofing management options by M. N Patriquin( Book )

5 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Beetle-proofing is a form of preventive maintenance used to ensure the economic viability of pine forest stands susceptible to mountain pine beetle infestation. This report provides a synthesis of the existing literature that examines the economic feasibility of beetle-proofing methods. Topics covered include risk & vulnerability assessment, uniform spacing, thinning from below, the shelterwood system, patch cutting, partial cutting, prescribed burning, single-tree treatment, and use of chemicals. Best practice approaches for examining the economic efficacy of beetle-proofing methods are also discussed
A study of visitor-sector employment and income in the Foothills Model Forest by A. M Wellstead( Book )

5 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This report presents the results of a study of employment in the "visitor sector" of the Foothills Model Forest (FMF). A survey and analytical procedure were developed as a means of quantifying the contribution of this sector to the regional economy. The survey was distributed to all 387 visitor-related and visitor-driven businesses in the FMF. The survey responses (from 260 businesses) were analyzed for each major town (Hinton and Jasper) and for each industry in the visitor sector (tours and transportation, car repair and service stations, retail, restaurants and hotels, and other). The visitor sector was compared with the resource sectors of the FMF in terms of numbers of employees and contribution to the total FMF wage bill. The analysis suggests that the visitor sector is the largest employer in the region. Nonetheless, the economic contribution of the visitor sector in terms of total and average weekly wages is relatively small."
Accounting for natural resources in the Foothills Model Forest by M. N Patriquin( Book )

3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The perceived deficiencies of the standard national accounting framework in addressing issues of sustainability have prompted the development of natural resource accounts. Many countries, including Canada, have adopted some system of natural resource and environmental accounting to augment their national accounts. Natural resource accounting is a relatively inexpensive and innovative method of assessing benefits flowing from a landscape and should be considered by government and industry for inclusion in various planning initiatives such as Detailed Forest Management Plans, land and resource management plans, and integrated resource management initiatives. While natural resource accounts are becoming more common on a national scale, regional applications are limited. This study attempts to fill this gap through the development of a natural resource account for the Foothills Model Forest study region. This natural resource account represents a baseline of values that can be used to assess the progress of Weldwood of Canada Limited toward specific objectives related to resource management goals. Market and nonmarket activities are valued to provide a better indication of the net benefits that flow from the regional landscape compared to the traditional approach, which considers only market values. The net income derived from the Foothills Model Forest landscape in 1996 was estimated at $615.4 million. Commercial activities accounted for $508.6 million (82.7%) and nonmarket components for the remaining $106.8 million (17.3%)."

Accounting for natural resources in the foothills model forest by M. N Patriquin( Book )

2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Natural resource accounts provide useful information for integrated resource management through the identification of both market & non-market values. This report begins with a review of previous studies investigating the theory & application of natural resource accounting. It then presents a natural resource accounting case study for the Foothills Model Forest region of Alberta that details value estimates for market components (forestry, trapping, agriculture, minerals, visitor-related industries, & the rest of the economy) & non-market components (recreation, subsistence resource use, environmental control services such as carbon sequestration, and biodiversity maintenance). The resulting natural resource account represents a baseline of values that can be used to assess the progress of Weldwood of Canada Ltd. toward specific objectives related to resource management goals
