How to Sell Timber in Illinois: Three Easy Steps

If you’re wondering how to sell timber in Illinois or the surrounding states, you’ve come to the right place. With over 30 years of experience, Walnut Timber Buyers offers the best logging services in the industry.

1. Schedule a Free Timber Appraisal with Walnut Timber Buyers

Our appraisal methods are truly one of a kind. By merchandising for a specific end user, we eliminate speculation and consistently offer the highest bid for your timber. It’s simple, really. First, one of our licensed timber buyers walks your forest, to mark and measure valuable walnut trees. Next, we use current market data to assign a unique price to each tree. Then, we enter those amounts into a handheld computer for our international importers.

Essentially, our practices allow us to play the role of each party involved in the entire process. The landowner has access to the best prices, without the hassle of maneuvering from harvesting to export on their own. After working with Walnut Timber Buyers, you’ll never question where or how to sell timber in the Illinois area again.

2. Work with Our Professional Logging Company

The Illinois loggers at Walnut Timber Buyers are the best in the business. From beginning to end, our dedication shines like the sun through the trees. Before harvesting, we mark your property lines to avoid crossing onto your neighbor’s land. As expected, we keep your property clean and beautiful by preventing trees from falling into streams and other watercourses. We also build roads to erase our footprint on your land. Lastly, we skid the timber to a new location to delimb the trees and cut up the tops.
