Methods of Timber Harvesting
A discussion and illustrations of the types of harvesting equipment and the appropriateness of each method in different forest conditions.
The forest industry in Alabama, through the Sustainable Forestry Initiative, initiated and supports a Professional Loggers Management (PLM) course. This course teaches loggers the principles of sustainable forestry, how to implement best management practices, and how to work with landowners. (See How to Choose a Quality Logger)
You may want to inquire of a potential buyer if they utilize PLM-certified loggers.
