Description: Managing central hardwood stands involves making choices. Each year landowners face at least three alternatives for managing a stand: (1) allow it to grow undisturbed, (2) undertake a partial or complete commercial harvest, or (3) culture the timber crop through a precommercial investment. Each activity affects long-term monetary returns. The "best" choice in a given year depends on your goal as a landowner, stand characteristics, and local markets. Understanding the economic elements of managing stands can help you make good choices and improve the productivity of your forest land.
