DescriptionSouthern timber harvesting equipment and on-road vehicle costs were obtained for the years from 1967 to 1984. Average cost trends for equipment and vehicles were determined for the period. Average logging contract rates and price trends were also estimated. Comparisons indicated that equipment costs increased more than the general inflation rate and less than the prices of other industrial commodities. Logging costs have increased less than logging equipment prices and both measures of inflation, which indicates increased productivity during the period.
