Timber and pulpwood production reports
The Louisiana Timber and Pulpwood Production Report, published by the LDAF Office of Forestry, is an annual report of total forest products severed and tax receipts received by parish and species plus estimated stumpage values. Data is gathered in a cooperative effort by the Office of Forestry, the Louisiana Forestry Commission, the Louisiana Department of Revenue and Taxation, and the Louisiana Tax Commission. Calculations are based on annual compilations by the Louisiana Department of Revenue and Taxation.
Quarterly reports of forest products
The LDAF – Office of Forestry publishes a quarterly report of the prices paid for raw forest products, on the stump, at the first point of sale.
Data is gathered in a cooperative effort by the LDAF Office of Forestry, the Louisiana Forestry Commission, the Louisiana Department of Revenue and Taxation, and the Louisiana Tax Commission. Prices reflect total volume and total value ratios paid from bid and negotiated sales. Values do not represent inter or intra-company transactions and long-term contracts.
The purpose of the report is threefold: 1) to provide a guide for private timber owners in determining stumpage prices regionally or statewide; 2) to establish annual stumpage price figures for severance tax purposes; and 3) to determine the timber value for use-value assessment of forest land.
