Abstract or Summary
  • Two hundred and fifty-four nonindustrial private forest landowners in western Oregon were surveyed to develop baseline information about harvesting practices and to examine the influence of marketing procedures on delivered log prices. Most respondents harvested to meet income or silvicultural objectives. Harvests on ownerships less than 50 acres in size accounted for over one third of the harvest volume. The majority of harvests were partial cuts; salvage harvests comprised about 20 percent of the sales. Most respondents managed their own sales or relied on the logger or timber buyer. Consultants managed only six percent of the sales. Respondents who left the sale details to the logger were significantly less satisfied with the sale results and earned lower prices than other landowners. A regression analysis was performed to evaluate the relationships between sale procedures and the delivered log price. The model indicated that sale to export buyers and the number of buyers contacted were positively associated with sale price; payment of the logger on a percentage basis, lack of familiarity with price levels and trends, and buyer-initiated sales were negatively associated with the sales price. Analysis of the relationships between ownership characteristics and sale procedures indicated that experienced landowners with larger holdings were better timber marketers by normative standards.
