Rawlings Consulting Forestry, PLLC: Serving forest landowners in North Carolina since 1983

Timber Sale for Powell 1988 Descendants Trust

Winter of 2018
Vance County, NC

Offered for sale is a first thinning of a 54.82 acre 25 year old loblolly pine plantation. The property straddles the Vance and Granville County line near the intersection of Hwy 158 and Hwy 158 Business. This selective harvest will remove every 3rd row. The residual rows will be thinned from below, removing the smaller trees, to a target basal area of 80 square feet. If rows cannot be located, use a simulated 3rd row thinning by harvesting parallel thinning corridors approximately 10 feet in width on approximate 30 foot centers. Remaining trees will be thinned from below to a target basal area of 80. Within the stand, do not thin areas dominated by hardwood.

Interested buyers should submit unit prices and a tentative start date. Rawlings Consulting Forestry reserves the right to reject any and all offers and may require on-site inspections of previously thinned stands.
