The Timber Buyer Licensing Act was approved by the Illinois General Assembly in 1969. According to the law, all acts of buying or selling timber must go through a licensed timber buyer. But more than that, the law set out to defend landowners from shady timber buyers.
Back before a license was needed, anyone could buy and sell timber. This lack of organization bred theft of timber from landowners. Trees where being cut down without permission, and people had no proper recourse. While the law has now changed that practice for the better, other logging companies have found different ways to take advantage of landowners.
Often, we find the timber prices you’re quoted from other logging companies are vastly underbid, costing you thousands in lost revenue. At Walnut Timber Buyers, we only give you the maximum value for your trees and won’t try to haggle you down.
