Rawlings Consulting Forestry PLLC

Timber Sale for Betty Joyce Tedder Best & Douglas Ray Best Revocable Trust

Wilson County, North Carolina

Offered for sale is a first thinning of a 19.28 acre, loblolly pine plantation with limited natural pine. Access to the property is via a farm path directly from Huckleberry Road, 3.3 miles south of Lucama in Wilson 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 75-80 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 75-80. Hardwood within the stand may be removed.

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.
