We are continually looking to purchase standing hardwood timber. We are looking for quality hardwood sawtimber that we can manufacture into lumber and cross ties.
How the Process Works
The Initial Contact
When we are notified that you have standing timber for sale, our forester will visit your property to determine our level of interest in the tract.
Determining the Value of the Timber
When we determine your timber will meet our needs, then, we will cruise the timber to determine a fair market value for the timber you wish to sell.
Landowners often ask our forester for his opinion on how the timber harvest should be conducted. We are happy to provide our input based on your ownership objectives as we strive to leave a well-managed forest for future generations.
Entering Into an Agreement
Once a price is agreed on, our lawyers will conduct a title examination and prepare a timber sales contract. Normally this entire process takes less than 2 weeks.
Most of our purchases are done on a lump sum basis – this way you have your money and we harvest the timber as we have the opportunity. Once in a while, we are asked to purchase timber on a pay-as-you-cut basis, which we will do in some instances.
