Sell Your Hardwood Timber – Timber Buyers in Tennessee
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. If you want to sell your trees to us in Tennessee, we would be love to hear from you.

How the Timber Sale Process Works
The Initial Contact for Purchasing Your Hardwood Timber
When we are notified that you have standing hardwood timber for sale, our forester will visit your property to determine our level of interest in the tract. We work hard to make the process of selling your timber smooth and easy.
Determining the Value of the Timber – What is My Timber Worth?
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 cases.
