Selling Timber from Your Woodlands:
A workshop series for forest owners

February 5th, 12th, and 19th, 2009
Snow Date: February 26, 2009
Hildene, Manchester, VT

If you own forests, you may be thinking about selling your timber. But is this a good time to sell? And if so, just what are you getting you and your family into? How can you best protect your interests and your forest ecosystem?

Thom J. McEvoy, Professor and Extension Forester in the Rubenstein School of Environment and Natural Resources at UVM, will address these matters in three evening workshops:

  • Is Now the Time to Sell? If So, What Are the Methods of Sale?
  • Timber Sale Contracts and Working with Forestry Professionals
  • Reporting Income and Expenses from the Timber Sale

Pre-registration will be required and readings will be assigned in advance of the workshops.
