These charts document stumpage that Two Trees Forestry has sold, with prices adjusted for inflation, since May 1997 in Maine, within the area bounded by US Route 2 to the north, Belfast to the east, and Portland to the south. Several variables contribute to the range that contractors pay during any season including differences in their access to markets, logging costs, volumes harvested and whether we sold them the timber through an auction.
