$29.50 plus tax (Refund Policy)


Prices were obtained for selected pieces of forest management and harvesting equipment for the 1968 to 1978 period.ยน These prices were compared to the inflation rate. Forest management equipment prices increased faster in the 1968-78 period than inflation while the increase for harvesting equipment was not as great as inflation. The effect on the individual user depended on his equipment mix: the greater the proportion of management equipment the faster his purchase costs rose.
