Successful Timber Harvests
For private forest landowners, harvesting timber could be a once-in-a-lifetime decision that can have long-term effects on the forest and on the landowner financially. It is very difficult and sometimes impossible to fix mistakes. Therefore, a thorough understanding of the process and the responsibilities of the landowner, forester and logger are critical. We discuss these responsibilities so that every effort can be made to ensure a successful timbersale.
