FAQ; Why Do I NEED A Forester To Sell My Timber?
Over the past 30 years dozens of clients have come to me after learning the answer to this question 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.

timber sales: Million Dollar Loss from Neglect of 270 Acre Forest 🌿 - 06/08/17 08:31 PM
Neglect of 270 Forest Acres Leads to a Million Dollar Loss
A friend recently introduced me to a friend of his who owns a half section (320 acres) in Western Wisconsin.
Both of these fellows seemed proud of the fact that in the 55 years that he owned this property he had been preserving the forest, never cutting anything and certain that it must be worth a fortune by now.
Then I had do my job and burst their bubble, and pull out my handy spreadsheet.
Just like a rental home that is ignored for 50 years, not only will … (9 comments)

Another Forest Leaving Forestry Behind? Maybe not...
I often talk to  people who are thinking that they are saving trees by not using them, and I keep repeating that this is a FALLACY promoted by well meaning pseudo environmentalists who know very little of nature, carbon cycles or economics.
We do need to make use of our renewable resources or we will not be able to afford to own them.  After all the owners of this land do have mortgages, taxes, insurance and all the other expenses involved in owning property.
When we don’t use our forests and allow them to pay … (1 comments)

timber sales: Half Million in Forest Income Lost by DIY Landowner! - 05/14/17 07:10 PM
How Much Do You Save When You Do It Yourself?  (a Negative $492,600)
 
 Unfortunately the people who need to make the most money from their forest are generally the first people to take a small shortcut that will damage their forest and their bank account.
 
Countless examples have proven to us and our clients that it pays many times over to hire a Forester to manage your timber sale.
 
  It really does pay big money to hire a forester.
 
  I recently had a man call me and ask for some advice in selling his timber.

Quality Oaks, Pines, and Wildlife, Waushara County Wisconsin
  175 Thousand Acres of Forested Wildlife habitat can be found in this beautiful Central Wisconsin County.
Though the Oaks here are not spectacular, the pines are exceptional.
One delightful remnant of a foresters advice from the mid part of the last century stands out with spectacular results.
That bit of advice that he gave to all who planted pines here was to mix a little bit of White Pine in with all of the Red Pines that were being planted.
The result of planting this row of White Pine to every three rows of Red Pines … (0 comments)

timber sales: Hygrading, The Largest Destroyer of Quality Forests! - 10/13/16 04:57 PM
FAQ  What is Hygrading & why is it so Bad??
  Hygrading is the slow destruction of a forest by removing the higher quality trees and leaving the poorest quality trees to regenerate.
  Hygrading is one of the main forest ailments that foresters fight against.
  Hygrading is often the result of well-meaning landowners and loggers who go with the old fashioned idea of cutting the big trees and letting the smaller trees grow a while longer.
  Some loggers go so far as to set up contracts with landowners allowing them to take all trees over a certain diameter while leaving all of … (15 comments)

timber sales: Foresters and Loggers, far from the same. - 10/12/16 03:57 PM
FAQ  Is there a Difference Between a Forester and a Logger??
  This is a question that we are not asked often enough; unfortunately far too many assume that Foresters and Loggers are the same.
 
  Loggers
  A logger is someone who harvests trees for a living.
  A good logger does know a lot about how a forest grows, which trees are growing well, and the relative value of the trees they are harvesting.
  A good logger also knows how to harvest these trees safely, remove them without harming the surrounding trees, and how to make enough … (4 comments)
