    Description

    Economic evaluation of forest-management opportunities is a vital ingredient of effective forestry programs. Choices among management opportunities are necessary because opportunities inevitably exceed funds available, and they are important because opportunities commonly range from highly productive to decidedly unproductive. Economic evaluation in oak stands shows a wide range in productivity. Primary factors influencing this range include site-productivity, length of the investment period, and division of costs between private owners and public assistance programs such as the Cooperative Forest Management and Agricultural Conservation Programs.
