Open to the Public: 

Learning from experience can be very expensive when it comes to timber sales, many of which are once- or twice-in-a-lifetime occurrences. Years of growth and value are accumulated in a mature timber stand, and the combined annual income from all those years is frequently marketed in a single transaction. When and how you sell your timber can influence how much money you make, your overall financial plans, the cost of forest regeneration, and other management objectives. This presentation will explain how timber is sold, how markets can impact the sale, and give tips on seeking professional help. By using this information, you can make your next (or first) timber sale both a pleasant and a profitable experience.
