### Resolved Question:

I see where you have responded to this request before - I was hoping you still had the answers available?

Conan O'Brien Logging and Lumber Company owns 3,000 acres of timberland on the north side of Mount Leno, which was purchased in 1998 at a cost of \$550 per acre. In 2010, O'Brien began selectively logging this timber tract. In May of 2010, Mount Leno erupted, burying the timberland of O'Brien under a foot of ash. All of the timber on the O'Brien tract was downed. In addition, the logging roads, built at a cost of \$150,000, were destroyed, as well as the logging equipment, with a net book value of \$300,000.
At the time of the eruption, O'Brien had logged 20% of the estimated 500,000 board feet of timber. Prior to the eruption, O'Brien estimated the land to have a value of \$200 per acre after the timber was harvested. O'Brien includes the logging roads in the depletion base.
O'Brien estimates it will take 3 years to salvage the downed timber at a cost of \$700,000. The timber can be sold for pulp wood at an estimated price of \$3 per board foot. The value of the land is unknown, but must be considered nominal due to future uncertainties.

Determine the depletion cost per board foot for the timber harvested prior to the eruption of Mount Leno. (Round answer to 2 decimal places.)
Prepare the journal entry to record the depletion prior to the eruption.
