Managing the Timber On Your Property


Post Hardwoods encourages and supports the selective harvesting of the trees on your land. Our team will work with you to select the proper trees to harvest. Post Hardwoods will identify, grade and measure mature trees, and provide you with a fair price based on the market value of your trees. 

Selective harvesting of the trees on your woodlot creates a healthier and more valuable woodlot over time. It also helps to ensure the growth of prime trees for future cuttings and additional revenue.
