Purpose

With the persistent low stumpage prices for southern pine products since the Great Recession, many landowners and managers question the wisdom of spending money on silvicultural treatments. If we evaluate the cost of treatments required to get an expected response along with the timing of resulting cash flows we can objectively decide whether the treatment is worth the cost. Budgets, markets, site quality and personal objectives are important determinants of the best mix of treatments for a particular property. This course will discuss available silvicultural treatments and their responses and evaluate the trade-offs between the costs and benefits for different mixes of silvicultural treatments. The course will emphasize quantifying responses for objective decision making.

How One Will Benefit
Upon completion of this course, a forest landowner or land manager will be able to make effective silvicultural and economical management decisions on managing loblolly, slash, and longleaf stands for pine straw.

Who Should Attend?
Foresters, land managers, forest landowners, and others interested in effectively managing their pine stands with an emphasis on growth, yields, and maximizing financial returns.
