Factors Affecting the Costs of Producing Oak Cordwood
Abstract:Information which makes possible an intelligent appraisal of the costs and returns in harvesting the forest, particularly the low quality portion, should lead to a more complete utilization of the trees that are cut and thereby contribute to greater returns from timber growing. This article analyses the relationship of the several steps in cordwood production and gives a clue to the wages that are economically possible under different market prices for cordwood. Does crown size affect costs and can an operator afford to pay 30 cents per hour for wood cutters?
