If you’ve had land or have recently acquired land with wooded areas, you may be thinking about harvesting your timber, especially if you live in Pennsylvania.
Pennsylvania is known for its beautiful forests which attract wildlife. When these trees go through their life cycle and are harvested, they also provide shelter for humans looking to build or renovate their homes.

How to Get the Most Out of Your Timber Harvesting in Pennsylvania
1. Book a consultation
When it comes to forest management, taking the time to contact a professional is the first step before you start cutting and harvesting trees on your own.
The reason this step is so important goes back to the life cycle of timber growth. Our team of experts know just what to look for when harvesting timber and knows how to get you the most benefit out of your forest by building a solid plan of action.
In addition, the process of cutting and harvesting trees is not an easy one. Some larger trees may require special attention, and some may not be ready to be harvested just yet. The goal is to allow your forest to continue to grow while removing vegetation that may be hindering its growth.
