Abstract

Private forest landowners have many reasons for managing their timberlands- from intensive timber production to wildlife habitat to family recreation. An exciting forestry development is the establishment of oak plantations on agricultural land. Both state and federal governmental assistance programs can provide part of the initial investment involved in forest establishment costs. Unfortunately, there are few existing studies to help landowners decide if the investment will be profitable.
