Forest Management Practices: Financial Costs and Returns

# 5 Financial Rate of Return Cut Areas of the Fernow Experimental Forest
  • Objective:
    To determine the effects of financial rate of return cuttings on: a) yield and growth of hardwood stands in terms of board feet, cubic feet, and basal area values, b) species composition, c) hardwood stand quality.
  • Objective:
    To determine and demonstrate costs and returns of selective alternative management programs in northern hardwoods.
  • Objective:
    To monitor regeneration of birch trees growing on clear-cut areas. The data collected provides an excellent demonstration of the financial and silvicutural capabilities of the management programs.
  • Objective:
    To provide financial and silvicultural capabilities of different silvicultural management programs.
  • Objective:
    To 1) test herbicide-shelterwood sequence at a semicommercial scale on a variety of sites, 2) gather information on costs of herbicide application, and 3) gain experience with mechanized ground application technique.
  • Objective:
    To determine the effect of individual tree selection cutting on stand growth and yield, species composition, and economics of even-age mixed oak forests of southeastern Ohio.
