We provide excellent and honest customer service all over southern Indiana.
The initial consultation is where our partnership begins. You and I meet to discover what you want from your property. The consultation is when you share basic information with me about what your are wanting from your property and it usually includes a tour of the property. Determining your goals and objectives for your property is critical to the success of any future timber management. After seeing the property and the timber resources I can provide you with an estimate on how much money you could expect from a timber sale. I can then also recommend potential management prescriptions.
Timber Management Plans and Habitat Management Plans help to guide future prescriptions on what management technique to use and when to implement it.management decisions and recommendations. These plans establish what the goals and objects of the property are, and provide a direction on how to take your property from what it is, to what you would like it to be. These plans are excellent tools to use for long term management of a particular property.

TIMBER STAND IMPROVEMENT
Timber Stand Improvement (TSI) is a management tool used to improve the current forest stand. This management tool can be used to accomplish many different objectives. TSI can be used to improve the tree species composition, reduce invasive and/or exotic species, create wildlife openings, and provide better growing conditions for reforestation and current timber stands.
APPRAISALS AND INVENTORIES
Completing a timber inventory is very important and can provide a lot of tax savings in the future. If you plan on selling or buying a piece of property containing a timber resource, you should have a timber appraisal completed. This allows you to know exactly what you are buying or selling and what it is worth. If you already own property with timber resources on it then you should have a timber inventory done in the case you ever decide to sell timber from that property. This can dramatically reduce the amount of taxes paid from the revenue of the timber sale. In most cases, it can reduce the amount of taxes enough to pay for the inventory itself.
