Abstract

If you own merchantable timber, you face an important question on a continuing basis: "Should I sell my timber now or should I wait?" How you respond to this question involves many issues, of course, including stand conditions, site conditions, and other physical and biological considerations. For many landowners, however, financial considerations are also extremely important. In this article we discuss "financial maturity" as a specific tool that can be used to help evaluate timber harvest decisions.
