Your Personal Forester for Somerset County, Maine
There are many moving parts in the timber biz and we act as project managers for you the landowner, while maximizing the value of your timber investment.
Establish your goals
It’s difficult to get somewhere if you don’t know where you’re going. We ask the right questions to guide you down a business path we walk daily.
Find timber buyers
Even if you know what your timber is worth, it can be difficult to find someone willing to pay you. So, we give your timber access to our network of buyers.
Hire logging companies
Once you accept a bid on your timber, the operational work begins. We find the right company for your job and make sure they know exactly what you expect.
The timber industry has a vast network of logging truckers that are inaccessible to the public. Our contract truckers make sure your logs arrive to the mill safely!
Knowing what you want is one thing. Making those wants binding is another. We make sure your contracts are as solid as the timber you’re harvesting.
Every time a load of logs is delivered to the mill, you get paid. We keep track of all the moving parts and make sure you’re kept in the loop.
Case Study #1
A landowner in Somerset County, Maine recently came to us to help him sell his timber, but he also wanted to replant seedlings.
So, we helped him convert his mature stand of timber into acres of pine seedlings and leveraged the additional income from the timber sale to purchase adjoining property.
Think about that…
- We sold his timber.
- We replanted his seedlings.
- We helped him purchase adjoining property.
- And he still had money in the bank.
That’s some serious ROI.
How did we do it?
We exponentially increased the return on his investment through a relatively unknown vehicle:
The 1031 Tax Free Exchange.
The landowner benefited far more than he ever would have been able to on his own, by using a forester familiar with the industry and production value of the land.
Continue Growing Your Investment
After you’ve cashed in on your timber investment, we can ensure that you continue reaping the reward from your land for years to come with our other services.

Case Study #2
Ms. Betty enjoyed periodically driving three hours to her land from the highway, because it held a lot of sentimental value.
She loved seeing the trees as she drove by and owned some 300 acres of timber, a lot more than she could see from the road.
So, we helped her:
- Create a harvest plan
- Leave a buffer of trees along the highway
- Harvest timber within the buffer
Her view along the highway was maintained, while providing a much needed nest egg.
