Canadian Forest Service - Ash Protection Model (CFS-APM)
For each year of the simulation the net treatment gain/loss is calculated and plotted on a graph, indicating the period of time over which a homeowner would be financially ahead/behind by using the treatment approach. Separate graphs are also shown for each of the optional benefits and costs. The treatment gain/loss in each year of the simulation is also shown in a table along with an equivalent annual amount. Negative values indicate the annual amount that a homeowner would have to be willing to pay in order to maintain the existence of a tree for the number of years shown in the table. The model runs for a 30-year time period.
