Mississippi Consultant Fees and Services: By Tract Size and Professional Affiliation
Abstract:Consultants in Mississippi were surveyed to determine their services, fees, and professional characteristics. Most consultants provided forest management and timber sale administration services inhouse and subcontracted site preparation, regeneration, and chemical applications. Average fees varied considerably by tract size. Average timber sales rates ranged from 8.55% of sale value for tracts less than 100 ac to 7.75% for tracts greater than 500 ac. Average fees for other services varied as much as 28% across tract sizes. Association of Consulting Foresters (ACF) and Society of American Foresters (SAF) member consultants typically were more experienced, offered more services, were more likely to be members of other professional organizations, and were more likely to have professional licenses in other states and other fields, than nonmember consultants. Average fees for ACF and SAF member consultants were generally higher than nonmember consultants, which held true across services and tract sizes. South. J. Applied Forestry 25(4):178–186.
