It’s an absolute fact that timber sales conducted using a consulting forester net more money for the landowner, have no environmental enforcement problems, and obtain results more in line with the goals you have for your property.
You wouldn’t go into court without a lawyer, would you? You could, but that would be a mistake. Same with a timber sale. You need someone in your corner representing your best interest. We are not always right, but we are your best ally when you harvest timber. Always use a Forester.
