Abstract:

"This study estimates the economic demand for water by new tree plantations in the 2.8 million hectare Macquarie Catchment in NSW. Trees displace current land uses in the upstream watershed and reduce river flow to downstream communities, agricultural industries and wetland areas. Economic gains are calculated for the upstream areas of new plantations as are economic losses for the downstream agricultural industries. We calculate economic surpluses for both upstream water users as a consequence of a policy requiring purchase of permanent water entitlements to permit establishing tree plantations."--Executive summary.
