New ‘Valuing Standing Timber’ Bulletin Available
Penn State Extension has released the new “Valuing Standing Timber” bulletin, a manual designed to help landowners and loggers understand the economic value of timber and how that value is determined.
This 24-page publication describes methods for estimating timber volumes and values in a simple, easy to understand, manner. It will also help landowners and loggers understand how the value of timber is determined and, in turn, provide them with increased opportunities for obtaining a fair market price when selling timber, said Dave Jackson, extension forester and publication co-author.
