Four Horsemen of the NIPF Apocalypse
Investments in timber production generally return at rates as high as or higher than those for most alternatives. The riskiness of these investments is often greatly overstated. Rotations that yield profitable timber crops are not unduly long; they are comparable to periods for Individual Retirement Accounts. Regeneration costs need not be prohibitive if available management and cost-share assistance is accepted. If foresters convince themselves of these facts they will increase their effectiveness in dealing with nonindustrial private forest landowners.
