Thinning

The Benefits of a Timber Thinning

Both the health and aesthetics of a forest can be improved by selective thinning. As trees age, they compete for nutrients and become overcrowded in unmanaged forests. Unless some trees are removed it will stunt the growth of the surrounding timber. A thinning will allow the trees to grow bigger, faster, and will grow in value. Thinning also allows the landowner to keep their forest protected. If you want to make money off your timber, there's no need for a total clear cut. Instead, opt for a thinning and turn your crowded forest into a beautiful forest. Timber thinning is an optimal forest management tool to improve timber stands and bring some revenue back to the landowner.
