Silvicultural research and growth and yield research over the past 50 years in combination with financial analysis allow for an examination of treatments that should increase rates of return on investment. This course discusses how such evaluations should be made and provides examples for different stumpage markets and many combinations of treatments. The course will examine different combinations of silvicultural treatments and how those treatments impact return in different markets ranging from all products having low and high values to low pulpwood and higher solid wood markets.
How One Will Benefit
Upon completion of this course, a forest landowner or land manager will have a better understanding of the effect different silvicultural treatments are likely to have on financial returns for existing and future southern pine stands in their market.
Who Should Attend?
Foresters, land managers, forest landowners, and others interested in making objective decisions to effectively manage their pine stands with an emphasis on growth, yields, and maximizing financial returns.
Dr. Barry D. Shiver – CEO Smarter Forestry, former Professor and Plantation Management Research Coop Director UGA-WSF&NR
