Selling timber is the most rewarding management activity many forest owners undertake. It is the most traumatic event for others. In either case, harvesting timber is likely to have a greater impact on your forest than any other management activity. Selling your timber can be a satisfying event, if you have done a thorough job of planning, preparation, and marketing. Many of the problems experienced in making a timber sale, especially by landowners who sell timber only infrequently, are the result of inadequate advance planning, sale preparation, and marketing strategy.
