A Study of Forest Depletion Charges
Abstract:The subject of forest depletion charges has not received the study by foresters to which its importance entitles it, though it is an intricate subject, often involving a thorough knowledge of forest engineering as well as accountancy. The first part of the following article deals with the problem where reasonably sound book values are available as the basis of capital investment, and emphasizes the percentage of recoverable timber, growth, suppression and economic life span. The latter part of the paper deals with the more difficult problem where book values are inadequate or unavailable and assets must be revalued, a particularly important problem today.
