Economic Evaluation of Old-Field Loblolly Pine Plantation Management Alternatives
Abstract:Using a computerized tree growth simulator for old-field plantations, this study reaches tentative and preliminary conclusions about loblolly pine (Pinus taeda L.) plantation management systems which maximize rotation-start present value under various situations. Assumptions included different product mixes and prices; interest rates; planting spacings; harvest ages; and intensity, frequency, and timing of thinnings.
