Cruising Timber provides a
Landowner with the
knowledge of what type of
timber is on his property, how
much timber volume (and
therefore value) is on his
property.  With this
knowledge, the Landowner
can make very informed
timber management decision.
  • Timber Cruising
  • Timber Appraisals with Management
  • Estate/Basis Valuation Cruising
  • Theft/Damage Appraisals
  • Acquisition Cruising
The decision to harvest
timber should not be
made on a whim. The
Landowner's objectives
must be met or
surpassed.  Of course,
one main objective is
getting the best price for
the timber now.  But
what about the future
productivity of the land?
  • Timber Sale Assistance
  • Selective Harvesting
  • Salvage/Damage Harvests
Selective Harvesting, including
pine plantation thinning, is a
type of harvesting where a crop
of desirable trees are left to
grow and produce substantial
income into the future.  

Each "leave tree" represents
an investment--if the wrong
leave tree is chosen, the
will not produce the
desired results.  Therefore,
making sure the right trees are
chosen is the most important
decisions a Forester must
make in a thinning.
