The costs of reforestation: A spatial model of the costs of establishing environmental and carbon plantings

Summers, David; Bryan, Brett A.; Nolan, M.; Hobbs, Trevor J.


Reforestation presents a potentially important tool for carbon abatement and reducing the impact of climate change and may also provide valuable biodiversity benefits. However, the economic returns are critical in determining whether it will be a viable land use and this is highly sensitive to assumptions around upfront establishment cost. Few studies have examined the spatial variability in establishment costs or developed spatially explicit layers that estimate these costs. Here we developed...[Show more]
