Stumpage Prices

 

 

This Table contains timber stumpage price data for the northeastern U.S. The Table has five fields: year, product class, stumpage price in nominal U.S. dollars (per mbf Int-1/4 in. for sawtimber and per standard cord for pulpwood), Producer Price Index (All Commodity, 1982=100), and stumpage price in real U.S. dollars. The sources for the price data and the calculation of regional prices are detailed in Sendak, Paul E. 1994. Northeastern regional timber stumpage prices: 1961-91. Res. Pap. NE-683. Radnor, PA: U.S. Dept. of Agric., Forest Service, Northeastern Forest Experiment Station. 6 p.(http://treesearch.fs.fed.us/pubs/9863). Questions should be addressed to the author at 271 Mast Road, Durham, NH 03824; telephone (603) 868-7672; email mailto:psendak@fs.fed.us
