Event description

Description

Harvesting timber, conducted with care and good planning, is an important management tool that can improve the quality and value of 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, you can ensure a more efficient harvest operation that yields the ecological and economic results you want from your forest.
