Q. How can I determine what to harvest?
We can help you evaluate your timber stand and establish your objectives. Possible objectives might include maximizing timber value, forest renewal, environmental protection, and establishing recreational preserves.
Q. What does a timber harvest include?
Timber harvesting includes cutting trees, laying out and stabilizing access roads, log decks, and skid trails. Timber harvesting can be accomplished while protecting water quality and site productivity. A harvest can also improve the composition and quality of future forests.
