Why should a landowner use a Forestry
Some of the best quality hardwoods in the
world grow in western Pennsylvania. Black Cherry, Maple, Oak and
Walnut are highly sought after. Most landowners are not aware of
the value of standing timber and it can vary tremendously
according to species and quality. An independent Forestry
Consultant works for the land owner and represents their
interests. They will make an initial evaluation, usually at no
cost, and then work with the landowner to help them manage their
woodland according to their objectives. If a landowner chooses
to market their standing timber a Forestry Consultant can assure
they receive the best possible price, usually through a bid
process, and then manage the project through completion.
Hardwood timber is a valuable and renewable resource. Properly
managed hardwood timber can be an on going source of income for
the landowner. A Forestry Consultant can be a source of
information to help the landowner manage this resource wisely.
Establishing a fair market value of standing timber may be
necessary to settle estates, divorces and other court cases.
