Mountain biking appears to be
unaffected by heavy logging. The visitor experience and numbers are improved by
reducing park capacity. The main issue is that any success with the mountain
bike park increases visitor numbers. A high timber price is also required to
balance the park's popularity. Mountain biking appears to require only a narrow
corridor; that is, single-track mountain bike trails are enough. The employment is a measure of the economic acting, a recession or growth trends.
A model which simulates the competition between logging versus adventure
tourism (mountain bike ridding) in Derby Tasmania.
How the model works:
Trees grow, and we cut them down because of the demand for Timber and
sell the logs. Mountain bikers and holiday visitors will come to the park and
this depends on experience and recommendations. Past experience and
recommendations depend on the Scenery, number of trees compared to the visitor
and Adventure number of trees and users. Park capacity limits the number
of users. To utilize highest park capacity, they need to promote to
the holiday visitor segment as well. Again, the visit depends on the scenery.
So, both mountain biking and forestry (logging) businesses need to contribute a
significant amount of revenue to CSR for faster regrowth of trees.
It looks like a lot of logging doesn't stop people from mountain biking.
Faster replantation of the tree will balance out the impact created by
logging which will give the visitor a positive experience
and the number of visitors is both improved.
To keep the park's popularity in check, the price of wood needs to be high.
Also, it looks like mountain biking only needs a narrow path.CSR contribution to nature can be a crucial factor.
