Tree plantings have many purposes and can consist of pine, hardwood or fruit type trees. Tree plantings can and will create new habitat and enhance existing habitat. This can provide additional food for wildlife and increase the value of properties in terms of future timber value.
At times tree planting can be used help offset income liabilities from timber harvests while still providing potential future return on investment. Under certain conditions government programs promote and compensate landowners for expenses incurred planting trees and establishing timber stands. Typically landowners don’t replant harvested hardwood stands as these stands tend to regenerate naturally.
Tree planting is seasonal with late winter / early spring being the optimal time to start a successful stand. Our staff has the resources to prepare, plant and maintain timber stands of all types. Give us a call to discuss any harvesting or planting needs you have.
