A difference-in-difference (DID) hedonic property price model examines the property value damage from the pathogen P. ramorum in Marin County, California. The mortality of tanoaks and coast live oaks in Marin County was first observed in late 1998, and the mortality continues throughout the central and north coast of California to this day. The pathogen’s growth on the foliage and branches of a variety of tree and shrub species, the ability to spread aerially, and the broad geographic range of the host species makes this disease a serious threat to many forest ecosystems.
