Reinvestment Rate and the Analysis of Forestry Enterprises
Abstract:Two forestry investment situations are used to illustrate the importance of the reinvestment rate when the rate-of-return (IRR) criterion is applied. One, involving the allowable-cut effect, demonstrates how an 80 percent IRR translates to a realizable rate of return (RRR) of 13 percent if the reinvestment rate is 10 percent. A short-rotation hardwood coppice investment generates a 29 percent IRR, but the RRR is only 16 percent if the reinvestment rate is 10 percent. A method for calculating RRR is given.
