a - Prices for individual sales may vary significantly from averages shown in this table because of differences in species mix, quality, road costs, logging and processing costs, size and length of sale, number of bidders, and other related price determinants. Before 1984, prices for stumpage on National Forest lands are statistical high bids. The statistical high bid is defined as the bid price minus credits for road costs; it includes an allowance for sale-area betterment (K-V funds). Beginning in 1984, prices for stumpage on National Forest lands are high bid value. Road costs and an allowance for sale-area betterment are included in the bid.

b - Pacific Northwest Region includes Oregon and Washington and a small portion of northern California.

c - Includes Port Orford-cedar, Alaska cedar, incense cedar, and western redcedar.
