All the Trees of the Forest

This final chapter asks: what are Israel's forests worth? This is a very difficult question to address. Most economists have little grasp of the many ways that forests contribute to human well-being or the quality of daily life. Forests contain “natural capital”; intuitively, people sense the manifold contributions of forests to society, even if they personally are not direct consumers of its many products and services. Recently, efforts have begun to characterize better precisely what these are, so that they won't be overlooked when the value of Israel's forests is decided.
