If you’re wondering whether or not you should sell your timber, here are a few questions to ask yourself.
Do you want your trees to be healthy and aesthetically appealing?
While a thick forest or a large tree line is often glamorized, there is more to it than meets the eye. When a large amount of trees and vegetation are growing without adequate space, you may be suffering from overcrowding. Overcrowding can not only cause your land to look unkempt, but can also harm the health of the trees growing.
When trees and vegetation don’t have enough room to grow, they can become weak, sick, and even die. Trying to remove dead or sickly trees can be a very costly and complicated process.
When working with an experienced timber management company, you are able to sell the trees that could be overcrowding your land while also helping the health of your other trees.
Since overcrowding or the risk of it isn’t always visible to those not in the forestry industry, it’s important to contact a professional to determine a plan of action for your land. Whether this means removing trees or not, Green Ridge Forestry can help!
Do you want to support a healthy wildlife habitat while also making money?
While many people know selling your timber helps tree and vegetation populations, not many people know it also helps the wildlife, too! Selling your timber makes room for new trees and vegetation to grow, boosting the environment and helping the wildlife.
Harvesting and selling older trees promotes new growth, which animals are more attracted to. New growth also means more habitats for the animals who live in the forest, meaning you’re helping them survive while also making money.
Do you want to maximize the life of your trees?
By selling your timber before it rots and dies, you are actually helping more than you think. A harvested dead tree can at least serve some purpose as opposed to leaving it rotting in the forest for no one’s benefit and just wasting space there.
Selling your timber can prevent forest waste and keep trees living for a long time. It also provides both a sustainable and economical way to give back to the community and environment.
While there are a number of benefits to selling your timber, it takes an experienced and knowledgeable timber management company to help you make the most of them. When you're looking for a timber management company that can help you get the very best price and benefits for your timber, look no further than Green Ridge Forest Products!
