Description: Buffer$ is an economic spreadsheet tool for analyzing the cost-benefits of conservation buffers by resource professionals. Conservation buffers are linear strips of vegetation managed for multiple landowner and societal objectives. The Microsoft Excel based spreadsheet can calculate potential income derived from a buffer, including income from cost-share/incentive programs, agroforestry specialty products, leases, and other enterprise sources. The program can compare a proposed buffer income stream to that of various cropping alternatives. The tool can also be used to evaluate the economic impacts of removing an existing buffer.
