Options for maintaining forest productivity after natural disturbance: A principal–agent approach

Tim Bogle and Gerrit van Kooten

Forest Policy and Economics, 2013, vol. 26, issue C, 138-144

Abstract: Historically, British Columbia mandated silvicultural outcomes on public forestland because timber had a sufficiently high value to produce high resource rents. The mountain pine beetle altered the value of pine, reducing rents and impacting the silvicultural re-imbursement of regulated practices. As a result, forest companies continuing to log stands of damaged pine seek to meet the minimum regulatory regeneration outcomes at lowest possible costs.
