Stumpage Prices in Southern New England (1978‐2011): How Do Red Oak, White Pine, and Hemlock Prices Vary over Time?
Abstract:We analyzed 33 years of red oak, white pine, and hemlock real stumpage prices—after removing inflationary effects—in southern New England. All real prices fluctuated; the real stumpage prices for white pine appear stable, hemlock decreased, but only red oak stumpage increased meaningfully over the 33-year period. This speaks to the importance of management—including silvicultural prescriptions to improve volume increment over time.
