Economic benefits of managing forestry and tourism at Nimmo Bay : a public perception study and economic analysis by British Columbia( Book )

4 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study was undertaken to address the challenge of optimizing the overall benefits of forest landscapes to both the forestry & tourism industries in British Columbia. Nimmo Bay Lodge was chosen for the study because it had a defined viewshed with merchantable wood, planned timber harvesting activities in the viewshed, and clients willing to be surveyed. A visual perception survey was administered to 96 lodge patrons to determine visitor response to various visual quality scenes & silvicultural systems such as partial retention and clear-cutting. The survey sought to determine the proportion of clients who would return to the lodge. Next, the viewshed for the lodge was defined to establish a land base for benefit analysis purposes, and an annual timber flow was derived for the area. The benefit analysis looked at several scenarios ranging from no harvesting to maximum harvest in four economic areas: resource value, business revenue, government revenue, and employment & income. Includes glossary
Wilderness issues in British Columbia : results of a 1993 province-wide survey of households by British Columbia( Book )

4 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The British Columbia government is trying to address issues related to the protection and management of wilderness in the province, including the benefits and costs of setting aside wilderness areas and the appropriate use of these areas. To help in understanding public feelings about such issues, the government conducted a province-wide mail survey in 1993 whose results are reported in this document. Findings are based on a 54% return from a random sample of 3,000 adult British Columbians who were asked their views on the relative importance of eleven environmental issues, the importance and benefits of designated wilderness areas, the economic value of wilderness areas, the acceptable uses of designated wilderness, and wilderness recreational use characteristics and expenditures. The report also compares the views of wilderness area users and non-users, and also the views of rural and urban dwellers. The appendix includes a copy of the survey questionnaire and tables summarising the responses
Commercial thinning of lodgepole pine : an economic analysis by Michael Stone( Book )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Commercial thinning is a partial harvest of trees in older immature stands were some portion of the trees removed have a commercial value. Commercial thinning currently makes up a very small portion of the total British Columbia harvest, but as the province relies less on its old-growth timber supplies, commercial thinning may become more important. This report describes a simulation study that provides an economic evaluation of commercial thinning of lodgepole pine in British Columbia. The Tree and Stand Simulator (TASS) model was used to simulate growth and yield impacts of a commercial thinning, estimate the potential cost and revenue derived from the thinning and the final harvest, and determine the net present value of the full impacts of commercial thinning. Analysis is limited to consideration of only one commercial thinning per rotation of an even-aged stand. Wherever possible, comparison of simulated results to actual field results has been attempted. In addition, introductory chapters review the biology of thinning and summarize previous research on thinning in lodgepole pine

Kispiox resource management plan : socio-economic impact assessment : final report by Marvin Shaffer and Associates( Book )

4 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Kispiox Timber Supply Area (TSA) has been the subject of an extensive planning process. Beginning in 1989 about 40 resource user groups in the area were solicited by the local Ministry of Forestry staff for their input on management of the TSA's resources. The economic impact assessments of the Kispiox TSA options completed to date have been limited in terms of scope and effort. A need to provide a more comprehensive and in-depth analysis of the impacts on people, their communities and their economy was identified and is one purpose of this study. The second purpose is to test the application of a new set of socio-economic impact assessment guidelines developed for the province's forest land management planning process. The study considers the assessment framework, including regional and provincial evaluation accounts; documents the current profile and trends in the Upper Skeena Region including the forest sector and tourism; describes options for forest land management plans and assessments of the options
