Financial Return Estimates of Alternative Management Strategies for 9- to 15-Year-Old Southern Pine Plantations in Mississippi

There was generally no significant difference in estimated present net worths (based on a 6-percent discount rate) between passive management and immediate treatment of 9- to 15-year-old southern pine plantations in Mississippi. The immediate management strategy only produced considerably larger financial returns in plantations that contained high hardwood basal areas. Management regimes that delayed treatment until the stand was 30 years of age produced lower financial returns than either the passive or immediate treatment regimes. Increases in site index and conifer stocking generally led to higher present net worths for all management strategies.
