Buy Article:

$29.50 plus tax (Refund Policy)


A method to determine the initial lease payment for a long-term timberland lease is presented from the viewpoint of both the landowner and the firm. The firm's analysis determines the maximum annual lease payment with an after-tax present value equal to the after-tax present value of the anticipated harvest income less all contract costs. The landowner's analysis equates the present value of a series of (less risky) indexed lease payments to the present value of a (more risky) timber production investment alternative.
