Abstract

State and federal expenditures for Minnesota's private forest management (PFM) program approached $1.9 million in 1987. Seven paired harvests were studied to determine the cost-effectiveness of PFM forester assistance on aspen harvests. Increasing the advisory role of PFM foresters while reducing their provision of on-site technical assistance could reduce program costs, as could imposition of larger assistance fees. Cost-effectiveness could be different for other assistance and timber types. -from Authors
