If you want to manage your forest, this detailed inventory of tree species, ages, sizes, growth rates, and volumes will help you
monitor your forest's health and help in the planning of future forestry practices for your property.
If you are looking to sell or purchase wooded property, this detailed appraisal will help you determine the fair market value of
the property, and map out present or future income available from the sale of timber.
|TIMBER STAND IMPROVEMENT:
This marking of inferior trees to be removed from the forest will help you establish the proper tree spacing for optimal growth
and quality, and can greatly increase the value of your timber in future harvests.
|FOREST MANAGEMENT PLAN, FOREST STEWARDSHIP PLANS, WILDLIFE MANAGEMENT PLANS, ESTATE MANAGEMENT PLANS:
These detailed plans will identify, map, and inventory the different forest types on your property and make recommendations on how
to maintain and improve the property to meet your present and future plans and goals.
|TIMBER TRESPASS AND DAMAGE APPRAISAL:
If someone has stolen or damaged your trees or forests, we can prepare a detailed inventory of the damage and estimate the value of
the damaged trees.
|COMPUTERIZED FOREST MODELING:
This is a detailed inventory of your property and many other variables that is run with one of today's sophisticated computer programs
that will make reliable projections of timber harvests, growth rates, and income from your forestland for many years. This is extremely
helpful in planning for future income from your forests, and for your forest's future.
|BOUNDARY LINE MARKING & MAINTENANCE:
Surveying, painting, and maintaining or posting of property lines.
These are recommendations and practices that we can implement on your property or that you can implement to increase and improve
the habitat available to wildlife and increase the numbers and diversity of wildlife on your property.
It is important in forest management to identify wetlands and manage them properly to prevent the degradation of this vital habitat.
It will help in forest road construction and forest planning to know where these wet areas are to eliminate any problems.
|GLOBAL POSITIONING SYSTEM (GPS) AND FOREST MAPPING:
These detailed topographic maps and GPS will help identify forest roads, home sites, well sites, wetlands, boundary lines, timber types,
and many other forest activities that may need mapped for future reference.
|ACCESS ROAD DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION:
Planning, designing, and construction of quality forest access roads for landowners.
|FOREST INSECT AND DISEASE CONTROL:
Foresters will monitor your woodlands for the presence of any insect or disease that will affect your forest health, and can implement
practices to control or eliminate many insects or diseases.
These fences are designed and constructed to keep deer out of sensitive areas of tree seedlings or tree plantings. Deer can effectively
browse and kill many tree seedlings if not adequately protected.
Tree plantings can be used for many purposes, such as future timber harvests, habitat improvement, or forest reclamation.
|INVASIVE SPECIES CONTROL:
Some invasive species of plants, such as stripped maple, grape, or fern, can kill many trees or eliminate any tree regeneration on your property.
Different methods can be used to control many of these plant species and improve your forest's health.
|EROSION AND SEDIMENTATION CONTROL PLANS:
If you are doing any earth moving activities on your property you need to have a plan to control and minimize the amount of erosion and sedimentation.
