DescriptionA set of value concepts and methods for appraising both values-at-risk and change in value resulting from wildfire are presented. Emphasis is placed on the effects of forest fires in terms of their affects on human and organization goal achievement. Fire effects that help achieve goals are beneficial; those that hinder goal achievement are undesirable and create damage.
