Title: Effects of Market Prices and Silvicultural Practices on Lumber Value of Standing Trees In Uneven-Ages Plots

Author: Patterson, David W.;

Date: 1998

Source: Improving Forest Productivity for Timber...A Key to Sustainability Conference Proceedings

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: Uneven-aged management plots were established using three variables (site index, basal area, and maximum diameter). This study looked at the significance of the variables on the lumber volume per acre, lumber value per thousand board feet (Mbf), and stand value per acre as well as the influence on these analysis by market prices (May 1997, May 1998, and October 1998). The results of analyzing lumber volume indicate all three independent variables were significant. With lumber value per Mbf, only maximum diameter was consistently significant while site index was close - only significant for the May 1997 market prices. In analyzing stand value per acre, all three variables proved to be significant.
