Massachusetts Stumpage Price Information, 1959 to 1988

Stumpage data for the state of Massachusetts were gathered on a sporadic basis from 1959 to 1988 by the Marketing and Utilization staff of the Bureau of Forestry.

Data were sometimes grouped by county into the following four categories:

  • Group A: Berkshire, Franklin, Hampshire, and Hampden counties
  • Group B: Worcester, Middlesex, and Norfolk Counties
  • Group C: Essex County
  • Group D: Plymouth, Barnstable, Dukes, and Nantucket Counties

Sometimes, arrows appear next to prices, indicating either an increase [arrow pointing up] or decrease [arrow pointing down] since the last price survey.
