Based on a simplified inventory of trees, we prepared a set of hypothetical programs which put varying emphasis on the(More)
The paper investigates the spatial heterogeneity of public's preferences for the implementation of a new country-wide forest management and protection program in Poland. Spatial econometric methods and high resolution geographical information system data related to forest characteristics are used to explain the variation in individual-specific willingness(More)
