The Potential Economic Effect of Lease Hunting on Forest Management in the Southeast

Buy Article:

$29.50 plus tax (Refund Policy)

A survey was conducted of 1989 forest industry hunt lease programs in the southern United States. Average annual lease fees were $2.15/ac and respondents placed additional implicit values of $2.15/ac and $3.11/ac respectively for public relations and protection (access control, property damage, etc.) benefits. Contributions to net present value ranged from $22.37 for a conservative estimate of leasing alone to $96.64 for an estimate of all benefits when discounted at 6% over a 25-yr rotation. Interest in leasing by industry has increased since a similar survey was conducted in 1985. South. J. Appl. For. 16(4):200-203
