Walnut Timber Buyers lets you know exactly what your trees are worth when you want to sell to the best timber companies in Illinois. Our unique tree appraisal process allows our licensed and experienced timber buyers to evaluate every marketable tree you won. Plus, we can handle everything during the tree harvesting process. Our services include:

  • Select harvesting that clears only mature trees and leaves your woodlands beautiful.
  • Transportation services from your property to end users for all the standing timber or cut logs we buy
  • Quick and easy payment processes that make sure you receive all your money before we haul any wood off your property.
  • We are excited to announce that we have aligned with other mills to become a large bourbon and wine barrel producer.

With that in mind, we are looking to buy white oak staves that we can use to produce bourbon and wine barrels for a five-state area. Our name is Walnut Timber Buyers, but we buy a lot more than just black walnut trees!

What Is My Timber Worth and How Can I Sell It?
