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.
This day-long seminar will introduce landowners to the steps involved in setting up and managing a timber sale. Participants will be better prepared to manage a timber sale and more familiar with resources for assistance. All woodland owners are encouraged to attend regardless of past workshop experience.
