Yellow Wood partnered with Mt. Auburn Associates to help the Massachusetts Trust for Public Land build a framework for discussing the full range of economic benefits derived from public land. Categories of economic benefit include contributions to economic development, human capital development, state and municipal fiscal health, and community development. The work resulted in a publication, "Parks and Beaches: Common Cents for the Common Wealth."
