Will Pine Timber Supply and Demand Ever Reach a Balance?

Dr. Brooks Mendell is president and CEO of Forisk Consulting, LLC, which analyzes forest supplies, wood demand and timber pricing to develop forecasts and strategic guidance. Their approach emphasizes rigorous research, clear communication, localized analysis and direct forestry experience. The analysis of timber supplies and wood demand matches the location of wood sources to forest industry manufacturers. In the South, the disruptive, long-term effects of the Recession have altered the supply-demand balance of pine grade (sawtimber and chip-n-saw) supplies in our area. Grade inventories are a combination of removals and growth on acres planted 15+ years ago. In forestry, it takes time to change the trajectory of supply without a catastrophe.

Using Fire to Manage Hardwoods. Oil & Water?

Callie Jo Schweitzer, is a Research Forester with The USDA Forest Service Southern Research Station, and is considered an expert in hardwood forest management. The hardwood forests of Alabama "came about after tremendous disturbance and they remain tied to disturbance, whether introduced by us, or by nature. At the turn of the previous century, these forests were subjected to a perfect storm of disturbances that resulted in the stand structure and species composition we have today."

Profiting from Pine Straw

David Sherer, owner of Sherer Straw Supply, has been harvesting pine straw off his land since 2001. Pine straw has been the number one landscape mulch product in the Southeast for more than 50 years, and production of pine straw can be a good way for forest land owners to earn income, providing an opportunity to cover some of the costs of plantation establishment and pay for prescribed burning and other management practices to maintain and enhance longleaf forest habitat conditions.

Year-End Tax Planning for Landowners

Orman Wilson is a tax manager and leader of the Timber Practice Group at Jamison Money Farmer, PC, which is well-known for their tax expertise for forest landowners. The end of the year means a lot to many folks. It's Christmas, New Year's Eve, and preparing for the new year. One way landowners can prepare is to begin their tax planning. Because there are complicated tax laws surrounding timber, it is important for landowners to understand these laws in order to optimize their tax situation.
