Forest Management

If the value of the timber of the actual stand described in the "Thinning" scenario were assigned the highest possible board foot value based on DBH as per USDA Forest Service grading rules where:

  • <9.6"=pulpwood

  • 9.6-12.5"=F3 log grade

  • 12.6-15.5"=F2 log grade

  • >15.6"=F1 log grade.

and then clear cut instead of thinned at stand age 55 years with this value compounded simply at 3% for fifteen years the result is:

Total value of one acre stand at stand clearcut age

55 and money invested for 15 years=$6813.78
