TIMBER SALES MADE SIMPLE
Yes, we buy walnut logs and timber from Illinois, Iowa,Wisconsin and Indiana timber. We cut standing timber in a variety of sizes and species. This involves a simple 4 step process.
Expert Timber Sale Preparation
A management plan is the primary tool to express landownership goals and objectives. Timber harvests are specified at scheduled times in order to balance the owner’s goals and objectives. A timber harvest should be a well planned event, not a hasty action in response to an offer to purchase timber.
A Swanson Forest Products representative will meet with the landowner and listen to the landowners objectives.
The number of trees of each specie will determine the price we can pay for the timber to be harvested. We will share that information with the landowner.
HAND PICKED TIMBER
With the landowners permission we will walk the timber and mark trees that we feel are best suited for the market and the landowners.
PURCHASING THE TIMBER
If the landowner is satisfied with the harvest plan and the price, Swanson Forest Products crew executes a timber contract and pays for the timber.
Standing Timber and Purchasing
Timber and logs are purchased by board foot, using Doyle's scale (below). If interested, give us a call to arrange a bid. Please keep in mind that prices will vary according to current markets and the quality of the logs or timber.
