The Expense of Private Forestry: Survey Results of Private Practicing Foresters in Massachusetts
Abstract:There is little information available on the rates and different methods of remuneration associated with various forestry activities. We surveyed 145 Massachusetts-licensed private foresters in the winter of 2004 to determine the method, average, and range of prices that foresters charge landowners for practices such as management plans, timber sales, and other services. The results indicate that foresters charge a wide range of prices, and there are several different ways to pay for the same service.
