dc.description.abstractThis thesis uses a non-conventional environmental value elicitation technique adapted from Satterfield (2001) to help householders in the Wakefield/Snapfinger community subdivision of east Athens, Georgia to better verbalize what non-utilitarian, non-cost, intrinsic values they attribute to residential landscape amenity trees in the residential landscape setting. 74 of the 312 single family homes in the community were sampled through survey method to reveal from Satterfield (2001)’s 25 intrinsic environmental values, which value typologies residents attributed strongest and least, to their personal residential landscape trees. Overall, householders in the Wakefield/Snapfinger community placed highest emphasis on the belief that their trees are attractive, have a natural right to exist, are important “just because,” that they contribute to a local/regional “sense of place,” and add biological richness and species diversity to their personal, residential landscapes.
