Selling Prices and Production Costs in the Tennessee Valley
Abstract:A rapidly expanding program of timber sales and a shortage of personnel necessitated the development of methods and data which would enable men, relatively new in the region, to make reasonable estimates of selling prices and production costs in stumpage appraisal work. This article presents tree values of local species based on maximum price regulations, and the cost factors usually considered in determining a fair appraisal. The data have been designed to cover conditions normally encountered in the varied topography of the Tennessee Valley where a large proportion of the lumber produced is manufactured by portable mills, but the methods used may also be valuable to foresters elsewhere engaged in the preparation of timber sales.
