Sales & Valuations
We can help you calculate income from your woodlands, in order to help you manage them more effectively. We can assess timber values and mark parcels of timber for sale, either standing, at stump or roadside. We can set up tenders to achieve the best price in the current markets, or arrange for the timber to be sent to auction for sale.
