8 Steps to Harvesting

To grow a forest or woodland involves a long investment in time.

To get every dollar of the value from your forest or woodlot, you need a plan, expert harvesting, effective cartage, solid marketing relationships and efficient project management.

Many forest owners want to stay involved during the harvesting of their forest and see it through to the completion of the return on investment. At Professional Harvesting Systems, we offer expert harvest management services while allowing you – the client – to retain control.

The decisions you make at harvesting can make or break your investment. That’s why whatever your reason for harvesting, our experts are eager to provide advice to ensure you get the best return for your trees.

The best place to start is getting your trees assessed to determine the volume and infrastructure requirements.

To shed more light on the matter, we highlight the 8 Steps to Harvesting – starting from Assessment all the way to Project Completion.
