Forest Management Plans
A forest management plan is an essential first step in the ownership of forestland. The plan will outline

Harvesting timber may happen only once or twice in your lifetime, but can have lasting effects on the woodland for years to come. When implemented correctly, a harvest will have a positive impact on the trees and the habitat. A well planned timber harvest will achieve the desired objectives for the owner while respecting and caring for the land. From start to finish we guide the landowner through the timber sale process to ensure a successful harvest.
An inventory is needed to determine the number of trees, types of tree species, and volume of board feet present in the woodland for
appraisals and management descision making.
