Economics of Timber Sale Decisions
The value of a forestry investment can be cut nearly in half by making poor decisions about timber sales. Selling at high prices and qualifying for long-term capital gains treatment are the two most critical items. Selling at the right rotation age is less important. Decisions about selling lump sum or scale are related to a landowner's income tax situation.
