The Fallacy of Preferred Species

The popularity and market values of major hardwood lumber products occur in cycles, which makes the selection of preferred species a questionable practice in silvicultural treatments. The differences between the 1935 market values of specific lumber products and the values of the same products in later years, and the cycling of values and volume of specific lumber products from the North Carolina National Forests for a 29-year period (1957-1986) suggest that there should be less dependence on current prices and species popularity in planning future forests, and more consideration for soil protection and other nonmonetary values. South. J. Appl. For. 12(2):79-84.
