I am interested in the SNA Lake States Forestry services, so how does it all begin?
To get started, please call us at +1 800-633-2083. We will be happy to discuss your woodland, your plans for the property, and what you'd like us to help you achieve. We can also schedule a date to walk your woodland with you and provide you with a free evaluation.
Do I need to have a timber harvest conducted on my woodland?
Determining if a timber harvest is necessary on your woodland depends on your objectives, as well as the condition of your woodland. In order to assess the condition of your woodland and make accurate recommendations our foresters would need to schedule a date to meet with you and walk through your property.
In some cases a timber harvest will increase the value of your property by removing the low quality and/or biologically mature trees and promoting the younger healthier ones to grow. Additionally timber harvests can enhance the wildlife habitat on your property. For younger woodlands a pre-commercial harvest may serve to your advantage as they can help your property increase yield by speeding up the process. In other cases the best thing to do is leave the woodland to grow until it is ready to be harvested. Our forester can help you with these decisions.
