Data from the US Department of Agriculture's Economics Research Service indicated that forestland values in Appalachia, the Southeast, and the Delta States increased at rates well above the rate of inflation between 1971 and 1979. Forestland prices for 1970 were highest in the Southeast and lowest in the Lake States. Compared to alternative land uses, forestry was found to be very low valued. The per-acre selling price of forestland declined as size of the transaction increased, but began to stabilize for tracts of 200 acres or more in area.-Author
