Valuing Hemlock Woolly Adelgid Control in Public Forests: Scope Effects with Attribute Nonattendance

Valuing Hemlock Woolly Adelgid Control in Public Forests: Scope Effects with Attribute Nonattendance <p>ABSTRACT:</p><p>Sensitivity to the scope of public good provision is an important indication of validity for the contingent valuation method. An online survey was administered to an opt-in nonprobability sample panel to estimate the willingness to pay to protect hemlock trees from a destructive invasive species on federal land in North Carolina. We collected survey responses from 907 North Carolina residents. We find evidence that attribute nonattendance (ANA) is a factor when testing for sensitivity to scope.
