Inventories and Appraisals

Before you can know your options for a specific property, it is essential to have accurate information as to what you have and what itís worth. We appraise both land and/or timber, and because we have daily contact with the markets for both, we bring a unique understanding of land and timber to every appraisal we do.

Timber Appraisals
If an appraisal of timber value is all that is necessary, our foresters go to the property and systematically take sample plots in which trees are measured and recorded according to size, species, and product classification. The total volume and distribution of the timber is then estimated using this information. Current market values for each product classification are then applied to calculate the total estimated timber value for the property. This information is also the foundation for any management plan.


Land Appraisals
Our experience in managing forests helps us to specialize in the appraisal of timberland by developing appraisals that specifically address the value that the timber contributes to the property. Not only is the present and future value of the timber considered, but an analysis of sales of comparable timberland is also required. Obviously, timber is not the only consideration. Some of our more challenging appraisals have been for land with endangered species, and conservation easements.
