    Description

    Increasing concern over the management and harvest of special forest products (SFP) from national forest lands has led to the development of new Forest Service policy directives. In this paper, we present a brief history of SFPs in the Western United States, highlighting the issues that necessitated new management direction. The new policy directives that led to the development of a cost appraisal system for SFPs are discussed. The framework, components, and uses of this cost appraisal system are described in detail. An informal assessment of the impact, effectiveness, and value of the cost appraisal system is also included.
