A Financial Assessment of Capital-Extensive Management Alternatives for Storm-Damaged Timber
Abstract:An analysis of the investment costs of three management alternatives for storm-damaged pine stands is presented: (1) selection management, with 25-30% initial stocking, (2) natural even-aged management resulting from chemical release of suppressed pine seedlings, and (3) a standard pine plantation, with and without increased site preparation costs due to storm damage. Selection management and natural even-aged management were shown to provide a low-capital alternative with reasonable rates of return for stand rehabilitation. The landowner's management objective and treatment of land cost will determine the optimal alternative. South. J. Appl. For. 15(4):208-212.
