Timber Inventory and Sales

Butler and Company, Inc. conducts multiple timber sales for landowners annually. Each sale is planned to achieve individual landowner objectives. All harvesting operations associated with timber sales follow best management practices, and we supervise all logging operations to ensure that landowners are left with quality residual forests.

Activities associated with timber sales include:

  • Recommendations of area, timing, and method of sale (lump-­sum or per unit).
  • Forest products inventory and market valuation.
  • Sale area boundary line marking.
  • Marking of forest products for selective harvests.
  • Creation of GIS sale area maps.
  • Administration of bid process including creation and marketing of prospectus and bid acceptance.
  • Preparation and execution of contract.
  • Supervision of loggìng operations including monitoring of values and volumes of forest product harvested and reconciling removals with mill scale tickets.
  • Providing summary reports of harvest values and volumes, and disbursing timber sale revenues.
  • Final inspections of condition of residual stands, roads, boundaries, etc.
