Abstract

CASTRO, Ana Flávia Neves Mendes et al. THE ECONOMIC ANALYSIS OF WOOD AND CHARCOAL PRODUCTION BY Eucalyptus REFORESTATION IN NORTHWESTERN MINAS GERAIS. Rev. Árvore [online]. 2019, vol.43, n.1, e430110.  Epub Sep 23, 2019. ISSN 0100-6762.  https://doi.org/10.1590/1806-90882019000100010.

This study aimed to analyze economically the production of wood and charcoal from a Eucalyptus plantation stratified in three classes of productivity in northwestern Minas Gerais. Were used data from not thinned Eucalyptus stands whose area was stratified in high, medium and low productivity, being described by the logistic model. The data were obtained and the economic evaluation of wood production and charcoal production was carried out. The economic evaluation was made by means of the indicators: Net present value (NPV) and internal rate of return (IRR) as a function of the prices of wood and charcoal, the yield of wood in charcoal and the transport distance of wood to the charcoal production unit. The economic viability of production of Eucalyptus wood and charcoal depends on the productive capacity of the forest stand. The viability of timber and charcoal production is sensitive to the variations in the prices of both, the yield of wood in charcoal and the transport distance from the production area to the processing unit.
