Description: A working definition of non-timber value is the difference between the revenues attainable by implementing an infinite horizon timber revenue maximizing cutting rule, and the value of the observed harvest. This non-timber value was estimated for the stands of the Forest Inventory Analysis data in the maple-beech-birch type in Wisconsin. Non-timber values averaged 23 $/ha/yr, and were higher than timber revenues, even on industry lands. Hedonic regression was then used to estimate the marginal effects on non-timber value of stand attributes and socio-economic variables. The results gave a vector of non-timber values for trees of different size and species. The marginal contributions of trees to non-timber values were significantly higher in National Forests.
