Michael has been specializing in using environmentally sensitive strategies in timber harvesting in the southeast region with the latest state of the art innovative logging equipment to provide the BEST service to landowners. Michael personally is the overseer of all timber harvesting thereby taking the extra time to aggressively rate the logs, so that more timber is sold as high-value timber and less are sold as low-value pulpwood. Additionally, extra care is taken to leave the land in good condition, so less preparation is needed before replanting. All these things mean a higher financial return for the landowner. He believes in professional logging that respects the land and believes in treating the landowner with fairness and honesty. We specialize in all types of timber from sawtimber, Chip-n-saw, pulpwood, and fuel chips. Mike is the single point of contact to the landowner for timber buying and logging the timber.
