Buyers of Timber

 

Eastern Shore Forest Products prides itself on offering superior value to woodland owners. Our total forest utilization abilities make us the best option for most woodland owners. Our wide range of products allow us to process wood that is typically left to rot by other timber buyers. We take the time to listen to landowners and tailor a harvest that best suits the desired outcome of the woodland.

We offer the following:

 

CLEAR CUT

Clear Cut – This type of harvest typically yields the most financial return to the landowner. Eastern Shore Forest Products will typically utilize every type and size of tree on the harvest area.

THINNING

Thinning – This type of harvest is usually designed to remove inferior trees that are too close together and gives the remaining trees more room to grow. Giving the landowner some cash at the time of harvest while improving the wood lot for a future harvest.

SHELTER WOOD CUT

Shelter Wood Cuts – This type of harvest typically removes 50% of the forest canopy, thus allowing sunlight to reach the forest floor and helping new trees to regenerate. After the new trees reach an age of 10-15 years, the more mature trees may be removed to allow for an even aged stand of trees or the mature trees may be left indefinitely.

The Shelter Wood harvest allows for the most diversity in the forest and is both aesthetically pleasing and an attraction to wildlife.
