If you’re fortunate enough to have a vast amount of woods on your land, sawmills and importers will be interested in what you have to sell.

How We Value Your Timber

There are several aspects of timber that loggers must keep in mind when harvesting trees. Each element affects the value of wood to varying degrees. At Walnut Timber Buyers, we only select trees that embody the best qualities of size, age, health and lack of blemishes, to fetch the highest price for your wood.

  • Size – First, we consider the size of a tree. It must meet specific standards in height and width as set by most timber buyers.
  • Age – It’s safe to assume a tree’s size directly correlates with its age. As such, importers and mills won’t buy trees under a certain age.
  • Health – A tree must be in good health to be of any value. Rotting and diseased trees are no good for making lumber and staves.
  • Defects – If a tree has certain flaws, it can compromise the strength of the wood. Such defects include cracks, cankers, dead wood and more.

Efficiency is Key

There’s no denying that logging companies in IL have a difficult job. However, it’s a job that Walnut Timber Buyers has mastered. We have employed the most skilled loggers and partnered with reliable mills and importers so to streamline the timber selling process for you.
