DescriptionA method is presented for analyzing oak management alternatives through comparisons of the present value of the net cash flow produced. Even-aged management without age-class regulation returned $72.60 of present value over a 40-year period. In the next 40 years the only expenses reduce the present value to $72.43. To regulate this stand into a forest with an equal number of acres in each age class, the present value is estimated to be $71.08, for a regulation cost of $1.35 per-acre. The average acre, selectively cut to create an all-aged stand, returns a present value of $63.17. This is a cost per acre of $7.91 for this type of management compared to the regulated even-aged forest.
