About the New Hampshire Forest Market Reports

From 1936 through 2001, with the exception of the WWII years, UNH Cooperative Extension (once known as the Cooperative Extension Service), published the New Hampshire Forest Market Reports. These booklets gave the woodlot owner useful information especially when the time came to sell timber. Log, pulp and cordwood stumpage prices; local and national market trends; prices for Christmas trees and maple-tap leases; costs for logging and custom sawmilling; addresses for sawmills and other forest products businesses and products produced; timber sale contracts; and volume tables are just some of the topics covered. The content changed over time to reflect the interests and needs of landowners and changes in the forest industry.
