Ecological Timber Sales

Generate revenue from your woodland and improve habitat for wildlife.


Contact Prudenterra to schedule a free Timber Sale Review–determine if your trees are marketable, and talk over your options.

Achieve your objectives for wildlife and recreation.

  • Thriving understory. Increased sunlight on the forest floor enables wildflowers to flourish and supports oak regeneration.
  • Biodiverse habitat. Standing dead trees and woody debris on the forest floor provide structural diversity for bluebirds, bats, salamanders, and other wildlife (more about this here).
  • Recreation. A more walkable, habitat-rich woodland makes for better birdwatching, wildflower hikes, and huntinglukegallahermedium.

Revenue generated from a timber sale can support improvements such as invasive species removal, strategic tree selection, or trail construction.

Receive the highest price.

Working with a forester can increase the price you receive for your timber by 30-40%. When Prudenterra conducts an ecological timber sale, we mark the timber and facilitate bids from buyers. Our compensation is a percentage of the total sale price.

Ensure quality regeneration.

An ecological timber sale enables desirable species to thrive in your woodland. Older or poorly formed trees are removed, and as a result, younger and better formed trees can grow more quickly. In addition, an increase in sunlight helps the next generation of desirable trees to germinate.

Retain jurisdiction.

Prudenterra marks and documents the trees woodland owners would like to sell so that only those trees are cut. Woodland owners also help determine how the loggers will access the timber, and where they will temporarily yard the logs before transport.
