Adjusting Timberland Lease Payments for Stumpage Price-Changes
Many past industrial leases of private timberlands have proven unsatisfactory for landowners, because lease payments were constant during periods of rapidly increasing timber prices. Although many contracts now index lease payments to the inflation rate, few incorporate real increases in stumpage prices above the inflation rate. This paper examines variations of two basic methods for incorporating real stumpage price-increases into formulas for determining acceptable lease payments from views of both landowner and firm. These approaches offer more satisfactory means for nonindustrial private forest landowners to receive annual income before harvest and for firms to obtain wood supplies without the high cost of land purchase.
