Getting top dollar for your timber, while being assured of a quality logging job, is tricky business. Unfortunately, there are many horror stories where things did not go as expected. Sometimes the problem involves money. At other times, it is a problem with the care of the land and/or the remaining timber. It is my job to get the landownder the best price and protect his interests.
. A lot of timber boundaries are sold on the shares method. In my opinion, this should only be done under unusual circumstances, and only where the landowner is sure of the logger's honesty. I favor using either sealed bids or negoiated sales. Sealed bid sales open the bidding to anyone in the logging business, regardless of timbering practices and past history. If the landowner wants to have more control over who purchases the timber, I recommend the negotiated sale process.
