Pine tree forestry is the easiest kind because their are growth numbers for your area that include things like soil type mainly. Everything is already mapped out for them and they have to do no work.
Yes it is. Growth/yield tables are easily accessed for each area. They come with density per age graphs. Soil types are readily accessible for each area, which show potential growth for each species in that specific area. They are normally as precise as 10-50ft. Just have to figure out what type of timber, where to sell it, and what loggers to put on the property. Sometimes you want slow loggers and sometimes you want fast loggers. Just all depends, but the tree information is already taken care of.
quote:You do know that they are area-specific, right? It tells you stocking density, age, growth potential, etc. Not much easier than that. They are based off of a multitude of factors for that area. They have them for each species of tree, pine, hardwoods, MHP, etc.
growth and yield tables are nice tools

maximize the potential of your site
quote:seedling producers have choices in what you want out of trees. Want high yield? get those. Want straight seeds to make poles? get those.
plan accordingly using the proper seedlings
quote:It is a pine hardwood stand. Not everything can grow there in every spot. Chemicals are standard across the industry
proper competition control
quote:all given from growth/yield tables. Just go out and look at the property to determine if it is in fact at that point
It isn't that hard, trust me. Frankly, I think pine tree forestry is boring as shite and would quit if I had to stick to that. Hardwoods are where it's at
quote:Doesn't, but it certainly impacts the property value. If you have piping run everywhere, you are gonna have to get the company to come out and set up where they can log and drive or set mats.
I have natural gas on the land and some oil. How does this impact the prices of trees?
quote:I was, but our timber production/management was for the gubment. If you are a forester, you know how much of a PITA that is.
i'm glad you aren't into pine management too, because all the rest of the foresters would be out of a job, since it's no work and all
