Whether your goal is to sell and receive the absolute highest price possible, or to develop your forest for recreation, or a combination of these, you owe it to yourself to get the most out of your timberland.
tudies show that landowners who utilize a consultant receive as much as fifty percent greater return on their timber.
Other studies prove that a well-managed stand can grow timber three to five times more valuable than the same stand if left unmanaged.
