Forestry Incentives: How Funds Were Apportioned to States in 1974

Buy Article:

$21.50 plus tax (Refund Policy)

Apportionment of federal cost-share funds among the states for the Forestry Incentives Program is based upon the relative amounts of worthwhile timber investments.

Acreage is estimated in nonindustrial private ownerships of less than 500 acres by state: this area is then weighted by expected financial return and the proportion of area suitable for treatment. Southern states receive 68 percent of the funds, but all states receive some program money. Results are relatively insensitive to reasonable fluctuations of the rate of return and treatment-suitability weights. The procedure appears satisfactory, but apportionment will be recalculated as new documented data become available.
