The difference between "real" and "current" prices is discussed. Forestry investment analyses can be considered in either real or current value terms. It does not matter which approach is used, so long as it is consistent, that is, all prices and costs are considered in either real or current value terms. An example of the proper procedure is presented and the implications of not being consistent are discussed.
