Stumpage Price Reporting in the Northern United States
Abstract:Data collection, processing, and dissemination methods of stumpage price reports in the northern United States vary considerably among the states due to differing objectives, markets, traditions, and budget constraints. Data are collected primarily from limited segments of the market with little quality control exerted by the compiling agencies. Prices are reported in terms of species, timber quality, and major product, and range from detailed lists to gross aggregates. Important areas for improving the price reports include more rapid dissemination, broader sampling of transactions, improved quality control and statistical analysis, and increased computerization. North. J. Appl. For. 9(2):69-73.
