This report summarizes literature examining financial aspects related to clearcut and partial cut silvicultural treatments of forest stands in the Pacific Northwest. Partial cutting methods considered include both even- and even-aged regeneration cuts and intermediate harvests.

The following economic measures are compared for alternative silvicultural treatments:
1. costs and logging production identified with stump-to-landing harvest activities, and
2. net present value, soil expectation value, and net present amount related to costs and revenues of silvicultural treatments over a full rotation.
