Selling Logs From your Property - Day 1 - Lane County

An educational symposium for landowners

Friday, October 27, 2017 5:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Selling Logs from Your Property - Flyer

Landowners log their property for a number of reasons. For some, it’s the culmination of decades of planning and hard work to produce a valuable crop. For others, it might be a liquidation of an asset to meet a sudden financial need. Still, others might be undertaking a thinning operation to improve forest health and habitat. Whatever your reason or goal, selling logs is a high-stakes endeavor, and mistakes can be costly – this is not a time to cut corners! Make sure your property looks how you want it to when the job is done and don’t risk unnecessary damage to your property that could take decades to restore.

At the symposium, participants will hear from consulting foresters, loggers, log buyers, small woodland landowners, and representatives from OSU Extension Service and the Oregon Department of Forestry. Topics include:

Timber sale fundamentals

Fair value for your logs

Rights and responsibilities

Benefits of a forestry consultant

How to select a logger
