Published by the Louisiana Department of Agriculture and Forestry, this regular newsletter reports prices for five areas of the state. Note that prices reflect total volume and total value ratios paid from bid and negotiated sales, and do not represent inter or intra-company transactions and long-term contracts. The report: (1) provides a guide for private timber owners in determining stumpage prices regionally or stateside, (2) establishes annual stumpage price figures for severance tax purposes, and (3) determines the timber value for use-value assessment of forest land.
