A timber sale is the culmination of many years of woodland management. For many small woodland owners, it is an opportunity for a financial return on their property. However, owners who don’t frequently market timber may find it a daunting task. Harvesting and Selling Timber: A Field Guide provides a step-by-step overview of harvesting and selling timber. The process is the same whether you are contracting the operation, relying on a private consultant, or personally performing the job. This book will help owners control the process, confidently deal with loggers and log buyers, make better decisions, and enjoy a greater return—from both an environmental and financial perspective—on their woodland property.
