Property owners should know the current and future potential value of their timberland investment. Equally important is a clear understanding of the methods applied to reach maximum profitability.
Issues considered in evaluating a timberland investment can seem complicated. These may include product market value, land value, inflation rate, appreciation rate, investment costs, taxes, rate of return and the resulting discounted cash flow analysis.
LMG offers a reporting system that defines these considerations in an easy to understand format. This system allows timberland owners an option to review multiple harvest regimes and silvicultural prescriptions to identify the most profitable management scenario.
