Obviously in our example, the higher growth rates of the southern pine plantation were high enough to provide higher returns than the slower-growing northern hardwood forest, but.

We extract timber from public and private lands. Today, the U.S. national forest system (U.S. Forest Service, in the Department of Agriculture) consists of __ million ha managed by the U.S. Forest Service and covers over __ of the nation's land area. selling timber. In the National Forest Management Act of (NFMA), Congress eliminated the restrictive provisions of the Organic Act, provided substantial guidance to the Forest Service for preparing land and resource management plans for units of the National Forest System, and required public participation in determining management.

The National Forest System is made up of 9 regions, all of which lose money on their timber program. In the Pacific Northwest region, USFS lost $79 million on average per year fromand the Pacific Southwest region lost $63 million on average per year.

Canada - Canada - Agriculture, forestry, and fishing: Less than one-twelfth of Canada’s land area is suitable for crop production. About four-fifths of this cropland is in the Prairie Provinces, where long sunny days in summer and adequate precipitation combine to provide excellent grain yields.

However, the widest range of crops and the highest yields occur in southwestern British Columbia. Growing trees for profit is an ideal part-time or full-time business for anyone who enjoys being outdoors and working with plants. Trees are a valuable and renewable resource that can be grown in a tiny backyard or on a acre tree farm.

The most. Figure 1 tells its story clearly and succinctly. On a more localized scale, Figure 2 reveals the recent condition of the timber resources in the Northern Region of the U.S. Forest Service (R-1).

It is an example of the how this involuntary virtual shut-down of logging is playing out in the real world. Timber harvest from nonfederal forests is expected to rise through by 47 percent over levels, an additional billion cubic feet of harvested wood.

Expected declines in harvest from national forests and other public ownerships will temper the overall increase in harvest from all ownerships.

Cost Differences. Let us look first at some wide discrepancies on the cost side. In the northwest region, Montana spent an average of $65 per thousand board feet of harvest to administer its timber program, while nearby Flathead National Forest spent an average of $ per thousand board feet of harvest on its program.

Forest Products Cut and Sold from the National Forests and Grasslands. FY National Summary Cut and Sold Data and Graph (PDF, KB).

Cut and Sold reports show total volumes and values of all convertible forest products sold and harvested from the National Forest System lands and National Grasslands agency-wide, and by organizational unit. Some work to grow timber trees effectively and efficiently, others to ensure adequate regeneration of seedlings and effective yet non-damaging methods of timber harvest.

Additional work focuses on processing and using timber products most efficiently and developing new markets for previously unused forest wood products. Northern Forests to Timber Cities. In partnership with the Northern Forest Center and with support from the US Forest Service Wood Innovation Program, GOA is developing new forest product supply chains that link New England’s underutilized northern forests and rural workforces to the region’s growing demand for dense, sustainable urban construction.

Project Methods Forest management practices costs, cost trends, and their relationship to national-level price indices are an area of high interest to forest landowners, forestry investors, and forest industry.

There is little published data on this subject. The most extensive forestry cost survey is the one published in Forest Farmer and Forest Landowner over the last 48 years.

Tree plantation does just that, by growing trees to create a profit for investors, help communities by growing trees that create jobs and growing trees to support the environment, sequester carbon and combat climate change.

Besides combating Climate Change, growing the right kind of trees has socio-economic benefits as well. Ownership of forest land by region and land class, Owner class/ Region land class U.S.

But intheir budget was reduced by nearly a billion dollars to $ billion. It has been predicted that future timber production will increase in tropical and subtropical regions of the world where rotations (years between harvest) of fast-growing timber species can be 10 to 20 years (Southgate and Sohngen ).
