TIMBER SALES

  1. We bring more prospective buyers to you. More buyers means more competition, and more competition means more money to you.
  2. We inventory and appraise your timber before you decide what to sell. You instruct us how much to sell for you.
  3. We monitor the removal of trees to insure the highest quality work. The result is that loggers are more careful on your property.
  4. We work for you. Not for the mill. Not for the timber dealer or logger. We represent your interest. Because of this, timber sales are set up to achieve your goals.

TIMBER CRUISING / APPRAISAL
Do you know how much your timber is worth today? If you haven’t had your timber appraised recently, consider having our forestry consultants appraise your timber at its current age to determine its quality classifications and value at today’s market prices. Our professional foresters will walk over your property and record a sample of the timber on your property, noting the species, height, width, and quality of the timber. This sample will then be used to estimate the total value of all of your timber at current market prices.This is particularly useful if you own a substantial amount of forest land. A timber appraisal will help in your estate planning by establishing the value of your timber resources, and help your family plan appropriately to keep and manage what you have worked so hard for during your lifetime.

REFORESTATION – TREE PLANTING
With the rights and privileges of being a forest landowner also comes the responsibility of protecting and preserving those resources for the next generation. Once the timber is cleared from your property, you should consider reforestation to put the land back into production. Based on your objectives, our forestry consultants will assist you with determining which types of trees would be appropriate for your land. We will also determine the appropriate spacing and administer the planting of the seedlings for optimum growth potential.

CLEARING OF COMPETING BRUSH / UNDERGROWTH
Whether to protect your timber investment or simply for aesthetic purposes, there are advantages to removing undergrowth from your property. Undesirable trees and/or brush can compete with your timber investment for sunlight and nutrients from the soil. By removing this undesirable competition, your timber investment will mature more quickly, and will also provide for a more enjoyable recreational property.
