Managerial Aspects of Donated Timberland for Foundations

Phillip Lee Ward and Dr. Thomas J. Straka

Forest Management

This bulletin addresses the managerial aspects of donated timberland. Basic forestry terminology, timber measurement and volume, timber value, timber sales and contracts, and timber harvesting are discussed. Foundation administrators and board members will find this discussion serves as a useful primer for first evaluating a potential donation of forestland or timber. A complementary bulletin, SREF-FM-016, addresses the financial issues posed by donated timberland.
