An Analysis of Multiple Product Merchandising Strategies for Loblolly Pine Stumpage
Abstract:Procedures are outlined for analyzing the value of loblolly pine stands, given various merchandising strategies, product specifications, and market conditions. Taper equations are used extensively for determining tree-bucking strategies that meet production specifications. An empirical example demonstrates the application of the procedures to a comparison of ten merchandising strategies for a timber stand. Among the products considered are pulpwood, chip-n-saw, plylogs, and sawlogs, with the latter three in both standard-cut and tree-length forms. Several sensitivity analyses demonstrate the impacts of changes in markets and product specifications on the values implicit in the merchandising strategies. South. J. Appl. For. 10:137-41, Aug. 1986.
