Presentation summary:
There are many factors that should you should consider when deciding if your timber is ready to harvest. Unfortunately many woodland owners hastily make that decision when a prospective buyer knocks on their door. This webinar will focus mainly on the financial considerations of harvesting timber, but we’ll also explore the role of landowner objectives, invasive species, regeneration and other factors to contemplate before deciding to harvest your timber. We’ll wrap things up with a brief review of how to successfully conduct a timber harvest.
