A timber sale is the culmination of years of planning, and getting the best price for your timber depends on many important factors, including the age of the timber, species, demand, volume and quality, access and proximity to markets, and current timber prices.
More often than not, it is difficult for landowners to have a good understanding of all the necessary factors that go into getting the best price for their timber. That’s where we come in.
Conducting timber sales is one of the most important services we provide. Whether you’re a larger, investment-minded, long-term timberland owner or a smaller landowner who might only sell timber once or twice in a lifetime, history has shown that timber sales will be higher when using a forest management service such as Broadleaf.
How it works…
We offer a “turn-key” timber sale service. We handle the timber sale, oversee the harvest, and coordinate reforestation. Initially, Broadleaf Forestry will conduct a brief evaluation to determine the landowner’s goals, and to establish whether or not the timber is ready to be harvested, as well as the feasibility of a timber sale.
Next, we appraise the timber, map its boundaries, mark the sale area, and market the timber to our extensive list of over 220 qualified timber buyers. Once sold, we will monitor the timber harvest to ensure the landowner’s wishes, responsible harvesting practices, and any laws and regulations are being followed.
Upon completion, we will make recommendations and guide the landowner through reforestation to ensure a healthy and productive forest is growing for future generations.
Our fee is paid once the timber is sold and is a percentage of the total sale price.
The bottom line…Get more money for your timber, get a better harvest job, and let Broadleaf Forestry do all the work!
