This preliminary value estimate of timber loss within the affected area of the Florida panhandle is based on the following assumptions:
Hurricane Michael impacted mult iple southern states from Florid a to Virginia, and significant damage was seen in the panhandle of Florida and South Georgia.
There has been some concern in the forest industry that the slump in pine harvesting following the Great Recession – combined with excessive inventory accumulation and poor stumpage pricing – may have contributed to a severe decline in tree planting in recent years.
