- From the economcs point of view, forest recreation along with clean air and clear water can be catergorized as typical non-competitive goods of serveices.
Forest recreation is also one of the important intangible renewable resources for the managers. Consistently and rapadly increasing interest in forest recreation requires recreation benefit should be evaluated properly in order to establish management policy for and efficient resource allocation. To evaluated the economic benefit of forest recreation, this study utilized contingent valuation method(CVM) and travel cost method (TCM). Based on the data gathered from thress popular National Parks in Korea, the benefit obtained by CVM ranged form as much as 292000 won (about 400 dollars) to 34000 won for each visit. Two TCM models were constructed based on different travel costs. For the first model, map distance form the origin to the park was used for used for estimating travel cost. Stated travel cost in the survey instrument was directly include for the sencond one. Both models
considered travel time as part of the cost. The results showed that benefit estimated from two models were considerably different.
Althogh benefit estimation from the second TCM model was much higher than one from the other one, it is still signficantly lower than one from CVM model.
This study discussed the problems and alternatives to solve them in applying these two non-market valuation technoques.
