Sell Your Timber

Timber Management.

Buskirk lumber is experienced with best management practices in the logging industry. We will come to the woodlot and listen to your goals, then explain our process. We develop a plan that’s best for you, whether you wish to harvest again in the future, make improvements for hunting, or open your canopy for tree and undergrowth regeneration. We will let you know how many trees we are interested in and the price we can pay. We pay top dollar for high-quality timber.

Forest Management Process

Forest Management is the process of removing older, lower oxygen producing trees from your property in order to make room in the canopy for younger, higher oxygen producing trees to take their place in the canopy. Selective harvesting is a sustainable process. Forest management not only helps other trees, but provides wildlife benefits as well! The vigorous regeneration of undergrowth on the forest floor – and the tops – provides shelter and food for deer and other animals to stay in your area.

When working with Buskirk Lumber, we will evaluate your woodlot and help set-up a select harvest schedule — ideally every 7-10 years. As experts, we will never suggest or recommend cutting down trees that aren’t necessary or are below our size requirements.
