Is pruning softwoods a worthwhile investment? In other words, are the benefits greater than the required outlays? Will every dollar invested in pruning provide a higher return than other available investment options?
The answers to these questions depend on a variety of factors, such as the cost of the operation, the time interval between pruning and final harvest, the productivity of pruned trees, the increase in the market price discounted for pruning and the interest rate selected. A simple calculation tool is now available for simulating the cost-effectiveness of this treatment.
