Huntin' Land | ep6 | Timber Land

This is Huntin' Land, the podcast for Land Hunters and Landowners; covering How-to's for Habitat Management, Land Investment with Real-Time Rut Reports and Waterfowl Migrations.

On this week's episode, we speak with National Land Realty's John Ross Havard, a registered Forester, and Land Professional. JR is giving us the current timber price for various timber products around the South. We discuss timber prices for pulpwood, chip and saw, and the current timber price for Saw Timber and poles.

Where are timber prices? Which direction are timber prices heading? What factors influence timber prices in your area? How can a landowner ensure that they get the best timber prices? What should landowners due to prepare themselves for the inevitable swings in current timber price? Here's a big hint, timber prices are extremely variable and JR sets you up for success taking advantage of current timber prices for your unique situation.

It's an informative discussion and a continuation to last week's show on the 3 rules for choosing the right timber tract for a profitable land investment. John Ross schools us on proper merchandising of timber, and how proper (or improper) merchandising can heavily influence your timber prices. We get into the differences that you need to know on how timber prices are calculated by the ton vs by the board foot.

Have you ever wondered,"is now the right time to cut my timber?" Clint, Joe, and John Ross answer this question as it relates to Timber prices, and how cutting your trees effects the value of the dirt underneath.
