Considering a Timber Harvest?
Selling your timber can be a complex process--many landowners may have only one or only a few opportunities to gain experience from a harvest in a lifetime. There is no single resource or publication that will make you an expert timber seller; however, there are many resources to guide you, including the Georgia Forestry Commission's excellent advice for selling timber found here. Landowners and other interested parties are encouraged to contact an attorney and/or a professional forester to get help developing a logging contract.
