Selling Logs from your Property

Forestry Events - 5 hours 58 min ago
Saturday, October 28, 2017 9:00 AM - 5:30 PM

This two day symposium runs Friday October 27 from 5:00 - 8:30 PM and Saturday, October 28 fro 9 AM to 5:30 PM. Landowners log their property for a number of reasons. For some, it’s the culmination of decades of planning and hard work to produce a valuable crop. For others, it might be a liquidation of an asset to meet a sudden financial need. Still, others might be undertaking a thinning operation to improve forest health and habitat. Whatever your reason or goal, selling logs is a high-stakes endeavor, and mistakes can be costly – this is not a time to cut corners! Make sure your property looks how you want it to when the job is done and don’t risk unnecessary damage to your property that could take decades to restore.

At the symposium, participants will hear from consulting foresters, loggers, log buyers, small woodland landowners, and representatives from OSU Extension Service and the Oregon Department of Forestry.

Topics include:

  • ·         Timber sale fundamentals
  • ·         Fair value for your logs
  • ·         Rights and responsibilities
  • ·         Benefits of a forestry consultant
  • ·         Protecting yourself from liability
  • ·         Inventory and marketing
  • ·         How to select a logger
  • ·         Notifications and harvest regulations
  • ·         Harvest taxes
