Forest landowners usually sell their timber only once or twice in a lifetime. Without experience, this can be a very difficult and confusing process. Learning from this experience can be a very expensive way to find out about what you had and how you should have marketed your forest products.

A good starting point is to develop a forest management plan for your property, which should include both short and long term objectives for your forest. An inventory of your forest property is paramount in making this plan. This will help you increase your profits and reduce any problems you might have in selling your timber or managing it for the future. To get the best results, you should have your plan written by a professional consulting forester.

A forestry management plan will help maximize the long term value of your timber and can immediately pay for itself via property tax reductions in all 100 North Carolina counties.

A study by a major university showed that landowners who received professional forestry assistance before harvesting timber received an average 40 percent higher selling price vs those who did not.
