The Importance of Land Opportunity Cost in the Determination of Financial Rotations
Abstract:Alternative approaches to financial rotation determination are discussed. In the past, it has been assumed that the importance of land opportunity cost, in financial rotation determination, is proportional to the magnitude of this cost. From recent work on Douglas-fir in British Columbia it appears that the importance of land opportunity cost depends principally on prevailing market conditions, related to tree size and quality. It is not safe to ignore the opportunity cost of land, when calculating financial rotations, without first investigating the nature of the stand's value growth function.
