Turn Key Operation

We cruise, evaluate, market, harvest and oversee the replanting of your tract of timber. Timberlands at this stage bring a rate of return equal to a one percent certificate of deposit. Whole tree chippers leave the land ready for reforestation. Reforested timberlands bring a rate of return equal to a ten percent certificate of deposit. Let us take a look at your tracts of timber. We have, on our staff, a licensed real estate broker and we buy land, as well as standing timber.

Reforestation

Reforestation is a natural process, occurring as a result of land clearing.  After forest fires or other natural disasters, nature has a way of regenerating itself. With proper management, timber harvesting and artificial replanting can benefit the environment, while at the same time they provide a cash crop for the owner of the land. Over 80 percent of the land tracts harvested by Seaboard Timber are artificially replanted–reforested.

A replanted stand of pine can be thinned in approximately 15 years.  For maximum growth, the thinning process tries to achieve 108 trees per acre as soon as possible. Reforestation assures a future income to the landowner and to future generations.
