The decision to harvest a forest is a critical decision for a forest owner and has long-term implications for productivity. Farmers should take their time to find the right forester when selling timber and get updated information on local timber prices.

Top 5 Harvesting Tips

1. Harvesting Plan – It should provide a clear understanding of what will be harvested, the estimated volumes and thus the value of the harvest.
2. Knowledge of Timber Markets – Getting professional advice can increase sale income by marking and marketing your trees, as well as improve the overall productivity of the forest.
3. Competitive Pricing - It very important when selling timber that you talk to a number of buyers to get a true representation of the value of your timber.
4. Harvesting Contract – This is one of the most important elements leading to a successful and profitable timber sale.
5. Reimbursement for Excessive Timber Damage - Your contract with the buyer should clearly state penalties for excessive damage to standing residual trees and other property.
