$21.50 plus tax (Refund Policy)

Portfolio analysis techniques can be used to quantify risk and return impacts of including forestry investments in a diversified portfolio. We suggest that similar techniques can also be used to evaluate price risk of investments in managing individual forests and stands. By observing annual price variability for various timber species and products, a forest manager can shift the timber growing-stock species mix toward a desired combination of risk and return. Using Indiana price data, we develop sample species mixes displaying different levels of risk. North. J. Appl. For. 9(2):55-57.
