Timber Sale Fundamentals

Thomas J. Straka

Family forest owners control over 57 percent of South Carolina’s forest land. Most of these owners harvest timber. A timber harvest is not a single event, but should be part of the owner’s management strategy and goals; it has huge silvicultural implications and impacts the future productivity of the tract. Unless the owner is well-versed in timber sale requirements, a professional forester’s services will likely be well worth the investment. If the forest is well-managed, the owner will have a forest resource management plan and a supplemental timber harvest plan.
