Event Details

Harvesting timber is an important management tool, and if done with care and good planning, landowners can improve the quality and value of their timber resources and wildlife habitat while generating revenue. By being well informed about the value of timber and the logistics of harvesting and marketing logs, a small woodland owner can ensure a more efficient harvest operation that yields the results they want.

Harvesting and marketing timber can be one of the most rewarding experiences of owning forestland... it can also be one of the most challenging.

This day-long seminar, taught by a diverse range of experts, will introduce landowners to each of the steps of setting up and managing a timber sale. At the completion of this workshop, woodland owners should know everything they need to manage a timber sale and who to turn to for assistance.


Topics will include:

  •  Assessing Your Forest Resources
  •  Silviculture & Harvesting Systems
  •  Financial Aspects of Harvesting & Marketing Timber
  •  Hiring a Consulting Forester & Logger
  •  County & State Permits
  •  DNR Small Forest Landowner Office assistance programs
  •  Low-impact & Ecologically Sensitive Harvesting Options
