Plantation Investment Opportunities in Black Walnut
An economic ranking of alternative opportunities for black walnut (Juglans nigra L.) plantation investments in the Central Hardwood Region is presented. Physical responses were estimated using unpublished black walnut growth and yield data and the current U.S. Forest Service guide for upland hardwood management. Cost data were synthesized from various sources and combined with prices obtained from a major walnut buyer to determine the relative profitability of each alternative. The rankings indicate that high sites, thinning, and wide spacing definitely produce higher values. Pruning may also become a more profitable alternative, given probable changes in markets, grading, and technology. The general analytical approach has application to a variety of species and problems.
