Selling your timber can drastically reduce overcrowding
While a thick forest and tree line may look appealing, too many trees in too few acres of land could actually spell trouble. Overcrowding, or the issue of trees and other vegetation not having enough space to grow adequately, can lead to weak, sickened, and dead trees within your property. The removal of these trees once they've reached a sickened state can be very tricky and very costly. By collaborating with an experienced timber management company, you can sell the trees that could be overcrowding your land and boost the overall health of the rest of your trees in the process. Because overcrowding isn't always visible to the untrained eye, it's important to consult with a professional in order to determine whether or not your land is at risk of overcrowding, and to assess whether the removal of trees can actually help the situation, or if there are other steps that must be taken first. Many land owners find that the sale of their timber results in double the reward-- earning them a fair monetary fee and keeping the rest of the forest healthy and vibrant.
Enrich the wildlife habitat when you sell sustainably
Selling your timber doesn't just boost the health of the trees and vegetation on your land-- it actually helps the wildlife in the area quite a bit. When you sell certain types of timber, new trees and vegetation can grow much more easily, which in turn attracts a more diverse symphony of wildlife. Like humans, animals are drawn to rich, available ecosystems, and trees often form the backbones of those ecosystems. Harvesting older, more mature trees to make room for new growth enriches the habitat significantly and provides a welcome change of food and shelter for the wildlife that calls the forest home.
Prevent waste and maximize the life of your trees
There's an old riddle that questions whether anyone hears when a tree falls in the forest, if there's no one around. In reality, there are thousands of damaged trees in forests worldwide, and very few people there to make good use of them. When you opt to sell timber, you're opting to extend the life of trees that, otherwise, would simply rot away. The value of one dead tree harvested and used the right way is tremendous-- yet the only way that value can be enjoyed is when someone's there to notice. Selling timber can prevent forest waste and help you get the very most out of the life of your trees-- providing both a sustainable and economical way to give back to the community and environment. When experienced loggers and timber experts like those on our team harvest the timber from your land, we search for dead, damaged trees to remove first, before tending to the healthy ones. Our goal isn't just to cut down timber-- it's to help you get the very most from your land.
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.
