Forest Landowners; Loggers Love when you Do it yourself.

Over the past 26 years I cannot count the number of clients who have come to me after learning this lesson the hard way.

Many people feel that they can do the job themselves, or they have a friend or relative who is a logger and offers to help them out.  They all end up gaining a small fraction of what their timber is worth and to add insult to injury their forest is seriously degraded in the process.

Forest

 

 

 

A forester knows how to;

  • Expertly market your timber to get you 400-1000% more money for your trees!
  • Mark the correct trees resulting in an increase in the value of the residual forest rather than a forest degradation!
  • Plan the timber sale so that the land will not be harmed from excessive rutting, damage to streams, and damage to residual trees.
  • Structure and administer a contract so that the clients’ interests are protected both financially and environmentally.
  • Determine which loggers are good and which are not.
  • Get the loggers to follow the rules, and not try to get away with shortcuts and extra trees.
  • Plan a timber sale for maximum Wildlife habitat.

When you go to court over something that may be worth $10K-100k, do you hire an Attorney or do you do it yourself, or hire a friend or relative.

Most foresters handle hundreds of timber sales, and most do it yourselfers handle one, who do you think knows what they are doing, and which one do you think that the loggers will try to take advantage of?

 

If you care about your forest and your pocketbook, hire an experienced Consulting Forester.

Logging workers have enough to deal with and every second is more hard when you add in people giving their two cents. Great job and great stuff!

I own timberland in East Texas. I hired a professional forester and logging company.  Would never do it on my own.

It's best to go with a professional to have logging done on your land.

Good luck and success.

Good points, Bob - I feel it is usually for the best to contact an expert in most areas, especially one with which you are not real familiar.
