Selling Trees, Timber Harvesting, Logging Your Property

Many landowners sell timber without professional advice. Studies show that landowners that use the services of a professional forester receive higher timber sale revenue.

VDOF foresters provide timber sales assistance including:

  • methods of selling timber
  • suggestions for timber sale contracts
  • lists of consulting foresters who provide timber valuation and sale administration

The Virginia Department of Forestry recommends all timber sales be bound by a written contract. Never use a verbal agreement to sell your trees.

A written contract protects both the buyer and the seller by identifying the responsibilities of each party. When drawing up a contract, an attorney should be consulted.
