One of the most difficult property situations you can deal with is a transitional tract that has an excellent stand of merchantable timber. The highest and best use of the property is not for growing timber products. Questions immediately pop up including, what does the timber contribute to the property value? Can all or some of the timber be harvested? Which trees will be left and what biological issues will be posed by the stand density once the other trees have been removed? Will timber operations detract from the market value of the property under its current highest and best use?
Would love to hear some comments on how this situation has been handled!
