So,what does your formula look
Land Expectation Value (LEV) = Net Value in Year n / (1+i)to n power -1
Easy, huh? Not for a minute....
That is why foresters earn their appraisals. And go to school for a year or
two...and take lots of math.
I would suggest you purchase Basic Concepts in Forest Valuation by Bullard and
Straka (ISBN 0964129116) and read starting with section 7.2....twelve pages
later and dozens of calculations later - you will get your final product.
I would also suggest you read the first 6 chapters, however, to get the basics
on forest financial analysis and learn how to use a calculator with the y to
the x key (HP financial calculator).
Ah, the life of a forester<grin>. Anders, you played right into my hands on
that one and this is not meant for you alone.
