Select Cutting for a Better Managed Forest
We harvest the prime timber and damaged wood (both big and small) to create a healthier forest. In ten years, it will be ready for another quality harvest. We harvest treetops for firewood to about 4 inch dia. and make brush piles. This leaves a better woods with enough brush to make compose that will enrich the soil. Being SFI certified means following the strict standards of a sustainable forestry initiative, following the Silva Culture Practices for a better tomorrow .
Trees may look beautiful and healthy on the outside but.......
A tree must be harvested at its prime or near prime. Once past its prime the tree will start to deteriorate and lower its value greatly. These are pictures of a local job site where the majority of the residents believed these trees were still very healthy however our knowledge and experienced showed these trees to be very dangerous and dying from the inside-out.
