Land & Timber Management
Do you own woodland? Timber is a valuable asset and proper management is an essential part of land stewardship. With a long-range forest
management plan, we can help you improve the growth rate of your residual timber and insure top value timber harvests on a planned basis, while providing environmental
stability and habitat for wildlife.
Timber and Land Purchasing
Are you interested in selling your timberland or your timber? Call or email us for a free inspection. Together we will
walk through your woodland and talk about your goals and objectives. Our forester will then give you an evaluation of your harvest potential. We will
explain exactly what is involved in a timber harvest, based on your situation and objectives. The next step is for the forester to go through your woodland and put a
paint mark on each tree to be harvested. Each tree is measured for volume and evaluated for quality. This allows you to see exactly which trees are to
be cut, and allows us to give you the best price for your timber. The details of the harvest and the terms of the contract will be
discussed. When all is agreed, we will sign the contract and make a down payment. The remainder of the contract price is normally paid before the harvest begins.
Our professional logging crews are trained under a national quality standard known as "Sustainable Forestry Initiative". A properly conducted
timber harvest will greatly increase your satisfaction with the end result. This includes directional felling to avoid hitting residual
trees, proper layout of loading areas and trails, erosion control measures, and proper site retirement.
While "Green" is the hot new buzzword, we have been practicing sustainable timber harvesting for many years. A careful professional harvest allows
for increased growth of remaining trees, and for new growth from stump sprouts and seed. When your woodlands are managed wisely they will
provide long term benefits in timber production, while maintaining environmental stability and provide habitat for wildlife.
