Another aspect of forest economics is forest investment analysis. Surveys have shown that many forest landowners hold their forest land for many non-economic reasons (for recreation, to hold the land in the family, for wildlife, etc), but many also list income or financial investment as other reasons for owning forested properties.

This site attempts to answer some of those questions and provide links to other sites with forest economics information.
