Timber Sale for Margaret R. Russ
Robeson County, North Carolina
Offered for sale is a first thinning of a 138.26 acre, 27 year old loblolly pine plantation with an abundance of natural pine. The property is adjacent to both McDuffie Crossing Road and Watt’s Dairy Road, 4.2 miles south of St. Paul’s in Robeson County.
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 85 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 85. Within the stand, do not thin areas dominated by hardwood.
This is NOT all weather logging and work will not be permitted on wet soil.
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.
