Best Management Practices

Like the trees, the forests of Ohio, Kentucky, and West Virginia
themselves are a great resource and important to our environment. Responsible forestry is critical to protecting the soil, water resources,
and wildlife now and into the future. Best Management Practices ensure
sound decisions are made when harvesting trees in our woodlands. By creating a management plan for your woodlands we can help to protect
the boundaries of your property, water sources, soils, and wildlife. Our
team will identify the differing species of trees, flora, and fauna in your woodlands, assess erosion, insect, and disease risks, and plan not only
the cutting and harvesting of your timber stands, but also the planting
and cultivation of new stands for future growth.

Prior to harvesting your woodlands we will determine the value of your timber, contract a sale, and set a single payment. We will also handle all bond requirements, provided road construction plans and management and take care of regradation and revegetation of land plans for post-harvest.

Plans for timber harvesting are designed to meet your immediate and long-term objectives, both financially and environmentally, including, but not limited to:
• Erosion factors
• Water courses
• Topography
• Forest regeneration
• Wildlife and habitats
• Skid trails
• Soil erosion risks

Our ultimate goal is to ensure that we meet your highest expectations. We accomplish that by ensuring that we follow Best Management Practices through every step of the process to prevent soil erosion and protect precious water sources so that you gain the most value from your woodlands while protecting your investment and the environment.
