Timber Agreements

An advisor offers this advice to experienced land owners who sell wood: if you`re thinking about selling wood or if you`re approached with an offer to buy something from your wood, don`t jump “too fast.” If you take the time to find out what you need to sell, choosing the right marketing method usually leads to a lot more revenue and satisfaction for the seller. The following are essential to be included in all timber sales contracts, whether or not the landowner uses a professional ranger. Contracts for the sale of timber should always be in writing. They should not be complicated, but should accurately describe what the seller and buyer have agreed to regarding all activities related to the sale of the timber. Most wood buyers will have their own contract.
