Timber Harvesting

Do you have timber that needs to be harvested? If so, there are some important things to consider, such as:

  • Tree selection
  • Road building
  • Logging debris management
  • Permits
  • Insurance
  • Erosion control
  • Clean up

Timber offers are not all alike!

One of the first points landowners should keep in mind is that not all timber offers are alike. In other words, making your decision solely on price is not always the best deal. The top priced company may cut more timber than is good for your property, or your tract could end up being cut by a low-priced logging contractor who does sloppy work with little oversight by a timber supervisor.

Comparing timber offers can be difficult. You need to take into account the wide variety of cutting skills, tree selection, road building, amount of logging debris, supervision, and the plain common sense of the cutting contractor. A timber contract is just as important as the intent and service that goes along with it.

At Scofield, we manage and control every aspect of the sale directly: price, tree selection, road construction, permitting, insuring the landowner against liability, clean up, erosion control, relations with adjoining landowners, as well as public relations for developers via press releases and news articles.

The Scofield Difference

Modern timber harvesting, though economically efficient, is often detrimental to the land, leaving it with greatly diminished value. Scofield’s methods are different. Years of award winning experience have taught us that attention to detail, with a process that is responsive to landowner needs, is the best way to harvest timber. Others may say that you have to forfeit beauty for income. We know better. We’ve built our reputation on making sure that our customers experience satisfaction, not sacrifice.
