Economic Impact of Private Forestland in the U.S. and Alabama

David Tenny is the founding President and CEO of the National Alliance of Forest Owners (NAFO), an organization devoted to national policy advocacy on behalf of private forest owners. NAFO has again commissioned a study by Forest2Market (this is the fourth) of the economic impact of private forestland entitled: The Economic Impact of Privately-Owned Forests in the 32 Major Forested States. We are particularly interested in finding out if there are any trends with which we should be concerned, both nationally and locally in Alabama. We also asked Tenny what we can do to make sure the "right people" understand the economic impact of what we do.

Prepare Now for Tax Filing Next Year

Robert Tufts is an Attorney and Professor Emeritus in the School of Forestry and Wildlife Sciences at Auburn University. After filing your income tax forms, have you ever wondered if there weren't a few things you could have done during the past year that would have made the process easier for you and your tax advisor, or that would have reduced your tax bill? We asked Robert for some suggestions and he threw out some terms with which you may want to become familiar.

Hunting Land Cooperatives

Ben Westfall is the Quality Deer Management Cooperative Specialist of the Quality Deer Management Association (QDMA). He is based in Southwest Alabama. If you or the hunters who lease your land are concerned that you don't have enough acres to practice quality deer management and your neighbors are not interested in QDM principles, Ben may have a solution to your problems. Forming a cooperative with neighbors, he suggests, has the potential to improve deer habitat, discourage trespassers, and reduce costs of seed and fertilizer. And he is willing to help you make that happen.

Timber Market Update

Harrison Hood is a Forest Economist and Research Editor at TimberMart-South, a timber price reporting service housed at the University of Georgia. Take a look at the Alabama Timber Prices Graphs that Harrison has provided us and you might want to ask why hardwood sawtimber prices are so much higher than pine today, but were much lower than pine back in 2009. Why is hardwood pulpwood so much more valuable than pine pulpwood? Hint: Too many pine trees.

Wet Weather and Timber Prices: The Executive Summary in the 1st Quarter 2019 TimberMart-South Quarterly Market Bulletin states: "Persistent wet weather limited wood accessibility, creating supply chain issues which in part resulted in South-wide average prices increasing for all three major pine products and hardwood pulpwood this quarter." The Market Bulletin is available by subscription.
