Washington Tree Farm Program Educational Seminar

Logging Your Timber: Options, Opportunities and Precautions

This seminar helps landowners harvest timber for maximum value. Your timber is a valuable asset. For many small forest landowners, harvesting is done infrequently and can come with many unanswered questions. Your trees could be cut and gone before you realize you have failed to maximize your profit on a long-term investment.  A contract logger, two consulting foresters, and a forest landowner will explain the steps involved, from filing the Forest Practices Application to writing and depositing the last checks.
