What To Do With Recently Purchased Timberland

If you recently purchased land, it can be difficult to navigate where to start on what to do with it to start making money for you.

Here are 6 common items that professional foresters at Steigerwaldt Land Services can assist with after a newly acquired property:

1. Where are the properties boundaries to where my parcel begins and ends?

2. How much is my timber worth, how is it evaluated or appraised?

3. What if someone gets injured on my property?

4. Is there funding available to assist with disease, invasive species, or writing forest plans?

5. Getting to know the “rural” neighbors.

6. Assistance with managed forest land (MFL) tax plans.
