The stochastic Faustmann problem is solved by a simplified approach as compared with the rigorous analysis provided by Willassen (1998). The result is a closed-form rotation formula that simplifies to Faustmann’s formula in the deterministic setting. The formula is discussed for two sets of assumptions: one where the rotation cost is exogenous and fixed, and one where it is endogenous, and to be chosen optimally. JEL classification: D92, D81, Q23.
