26. The wildland-urban interface fire problem - Current approaches and Research Needs
Published: 3/1/2010
Authors: William E. Mell, Samuel L Manzello, Alexander Maranghides, David T Butry, Ronald G. Rehm
Abstract: Wildfires that spread into wildland-urban interface (WUI) communities present significant challenges on a number of fronts. In the United States the WUI accounts for a significant portion of wildland fire suppression and wildland fuel treatment costs ...

27. Trees in the city: estimating the value of street trees in Portland, Oregon using hedonic valuation
Published: 2/28/2010
Authors: Geoffrey Donovan, David T Butry
Abstract: We use a hedonic model to simultaneously estimate the effects of street trees on the sales price and the time on market of houses in Portland Oregon. On average, street trees add $7020 to sales price and reduce time on the market by 1.9 days. Extrapo ...
