Timber Prices for US South Timberland Owners

Timber prices from Forest2Market's Timber Owner Market Guide help landowners:

  • Negotiate timber sales agreements based on accurate, current and local stumpage prices | Every tract of timber has unique characteristics that affect its price—if a tract has high quality trees, is close to the market, and is easily accessible, it will generally bring a higher timber price than tracts without these attributes. Calculating market value based on actual, local market prices available in the guide ensures your timber's value is based on the most accurate stumpage prices available.
  • Time timber sales for maximum profit | Understanding the local timber market can help you time your timber sales to get higher timber prices and maximize your profits. This information is essential for making near-term and long-term plans for your next timber harvest.
  • Determine the value of your timber | As with other investments, when you sell your timber, you pay taxes on the profits. To determine the amount of this tax, you must know your cost basis—timber prices on the date you acquired your timberland. Knowing the real value of your stumpage on this date may mean thousands of dollars in tax savings.
