Net returns ($/ha) by Tree age at Harvest for 110 Woodlots at 2017-18 log prices

If we consider the impact of tree age on net returns, we get the following graph. While there is no significant relationship shown (because of many other variables) the average harvest age is 27 years. A significant number have been harvested prior to 25 years of age, and some are older than 35 years.
