2012 Cost and Cost Trends for Forestry Practices in the South
In 1953, results of the first survey of cost estimates and changes for ten common forestry practices were reported in Forest Farmer magazine. The survey was next conducted in 1962 and then again every three to five years after that until the early 1980s. Since 1982 the survey has been conducted on two year intervals. The results presented here represent the 22nd version of this report which summarizes forestry practices costs in the South in 2012. Current costs and their cost changes since 1952 are included in this report which may serve as a reference for forestry financial analysis.
