Abstract: In this paper we estimate the effect of the Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) on the prices of standing timber in U.S. South using a reduced form model. The results of the estimation based on time series data covering the period between 1960 and 2019 suggest that CRP had a negative effect on the prices of standing timber in the long run. This statistically significant negative effect is estimated at about 6.5%, which may partially explain why standing timber prices in the U.S. South have stayed low for more than a decade since the great financial crisis of 2008.
