Sale of timber is a critical event in the cycle of a forest, the culmination of decades of growth. Achieving a successful outcome is essential.
Revenue is a significant factor in defining the success of a timber sale. However, the profitability of a timber sale is only one element of the process. There are a multitude of factors that can combine to deliver a successful result, and matching the objectives of the woodland owner with the capacities of the timber crop can provide benefits that extend well into the next rotation.
Our strategies provide owners with a clear and transparent approach to timber marketing, allowing them to make informed decisions based on the best professional advice.
Our timber marketing services are structured such that we can guide the woodland owner through the entire process from concept, planning and permission through to completion, and subsequent replanting where needed. This forms an integral part of our woodland management services, but may also benefit clients seeking strategic input into projects of a scale or complexity that require the assurance afforded by a forestry professional.
We offer clients a wide range of expertise, built on many years of experience, with intimate knowledge of local markets, cycles in supply and demand, differentiation in size and species classes and are but a few of the factors to consider. We provide an unparalleled level of knowledge in the hardwood sector, whether assessing viability of low grade hardwood stands or grading the finest oak logs. At the other end of the spectrum, we are constantly involved in the harvesting and marketing of large scale parcels of timber in upland conifer forests. These connections to a wide range of merchants, mills and contractors place us in a unique position to balance the right silvicultural approaches to the best the timber market has to offer, whilst ensuring that the delivery does not compromise future objectives or the sustainability of future timber production for the forest.
