DescriptionThis study investigated recent hardwood stumpage market trends in Southern Appalachia and projected National Forest stumpageprices to the year 2000. Over the past 10 years, hardwood timber harvest volumes from private lands have increased 38 percent with much of this increase coming in the last 2 to 4 years. Private hardwood stumpage prices have decreased across much of Southern Appalachia except for western North Carolina where prices have increased. During the same period, National Forest hardwood timber harvest volumes have increased about 162 percent. National Forest stumpage prices have declined within the region over the past 10 years. A judgmental forecast predicts no increase in National Forest real hardwood stumpageprices until the year 2000.
