Cut your timber, not your profits – IFA’s practical guide to selling timber

Many forest owners are apprehensive about selling timber, as they do not know its value and do not want to sell it too cheaply; or they have concerns that future productivity may be damaged as a result of over thinning.  These can be avoided by careful planning.

Too much is at stake for you to sell your timber without an understanding of the quality and quantity of your timber and the markets.  This guide aims to assist private forest owners to receive a fair price for their timber and retain a plantation that is in good productive condition.
