Timber Sales

Understanding the Timber Market

Timber sales can be confusing and difficult to implement. Using this service will ensure that your forested acreage is assessed properly and is harvested in a sustainable manner while also complying with state mandated Best Management Practices. Steps we can provide include:

  • Development of a Conservation Activity or Forest Management Plan to see if your timber is ready to be harvested.
  • Cruising the timber to determine the amount of marketable board foot volume by tree species (such as for oak and yellow poplar)
  • Placing the timber out for bid to various buyers such as sawmills and then I would inspect the harvest to be sure it is adhering to Virginia‚Äôs Water Quality Law.
  • To note: a private forest landowner should have a written timber sales contract and not a verbal agreement with a timber buyer.
