Helping landowners learn from their peers about harvest options Northwest Natural Resource Group (NNRG) and Oregon State University (OSU) are reaching out to forest owners for a voluntary study about timber harvesting methods to understand how they affect financial returns from the forest as well as its post-harvest condition.
The goal of this research project is to help landowners who are considering a timber harvest to learn from the experiences of others. Currently there is limited information about the economics of commercial timber harvests that use thinning or uneven-aged management, and how those results compare with other harvest methods. The researchers are surveying Oregon and Washington forest owners who harvested timber from their forest in the last 5 years (since 2014) and are willing to share information about the silvicultural methods and financial outcomes from these recent timber harvests – information that will be held in strict confidence by the researchers. The survey asks detailed questions about the harvest techniques and equipment used, the volume of timber harvested, cost of the harvest work, and the harvest revenues. The results of this study will be shared with forest owners through a variety of methods including articles, papers, and classes taught by NNRG, OSU, and partner organizations. Data in the study will remain confidential within the research team. Information will be aggregated so it cannot be traced to any individual ownership.
Data will be collected through at least June 2019. As a thank you to forest owners who take the time to complete the survey, the first 100 participants are eligible to receive a $50 gift card to a forestry supply business.
