Many landowners receive only a fraction of their timber's true value because they do not know what they have or how to sell it. Selling timber can be a rewarding experience if you understand the steps involved. This guide will not make you an expert, but it will explain the basic steps involved in selling timber, so you can feel more comfortable during the process and better about the results. Standing timber, logs and lumber are often bought and sold by the board foot. A board foot is a volume measurement ( cubic inches) equal to a board that is 1-inch thick, 12 inches long and 12 inches wide. The “board footage” of logs is an estimate of the amount of lum-ber that will be sawn from them. Many different techniques, orFile Size: KB. Does anyone have a good reference or resource for figuring out what loads different timber based setups could support? I know there are plenty of timber frame books out there, but so far I haven't found a lot of info for calculating what loads they will take. Ultimately I will consult with a structural engineer for final review of my plans, but I am the kind of person that really likes to know.

Timber Sale, Stewardship, and Forest Products Contracts and Permits. The Forest Service sells timber and special forest products on a variety of contract and permit forms based on the complexity and/or value of the sale. Guidance for the use of these forms can be found in Forest Service Handbook (FSH) , Chap Sections 53 and   Timber is a valuable commodity, and since most landowners only have timber harvested once or twice in a lifetime (at least on a large scale), some careful thought and a few simple actions before you sell your timber can ensure the process is done right. These tips are all about how to sell timber. 1. Mark your property lines.

trees while skidding cycle time was mainly affected by turn payload size and skidding distance. Productivity of chainsaw felling was ft.3 per productive machine hour (pMH) ( thousand board feet [MBF]/PMH) with a wlit cost of$/cunit ( cu-bic feet) ($ /MBF). Cable skidding productivity was ft.3/pMH ( MBF/. Hey Jay, thanks for posting such a well written article. As author and instructor of the Timberland course that James mentions, I can state that the course definitely points out the need for a forester but also educates the participant on the dynamics of a timber cruise (timber estimate) and explains why there is such a variance in estimates as you mention.   The BEST of logging by Harvester Forwarder & More.

The numbers in the timber pricing report are per 1, board feet. For each species divide the number of board feet you’ve estimated by 1, and multiply this by the appropriate price from our report. Let’s say you estimate the volume of your stand of mature White Oak to eq board feet.

Most of the formulae listed in this article originate from Matthew A. Fonseca’s book, the author of “The Measurement of Roundwood”. Our team had the honor to meet him at the Timber Measurement Society Annual Meeting in Coeur d`Alene last year. I agree with him that log scaling needs to be simplified, unified and harmonized.

Publisher Summary. This chapter discusses structural timber forms. Timber is the most versatile of all the structural media used today. Although a wide range of forms, including shells, beams, folded plate, and structural frameworks, would appear to be difficult to classify, all these forms fall within the four structural forms: (1) glue-lam, (2) glued assemblies, (3) nailed, bolted and.

A Timber Framer’s Workshop by Steve Chappell. Steve Chappell’s book is a thorough introduction to the art and craft of timber framing.

These cost modifiers are important, because with low-impact forestry you will sometimes be asked to cut low volumes of poor-quality wood and take special care to avoid damage to residual trees.

Third, the value of timber depends heavily on how much timber is sold in one timber sale and what kind of harvesting is done. Often, the larger the sale, the higher the price per unit of wood that can be offered. It can be more costly per unit of wood removed to cut only a few, selected trees, rather than cut most or all trees in the stand.
