Your New Hampshire and Vermont Timber Harvesting Specialist
A timber harvesting in New Hampshire and Vermont can be a vital tool for achieving a long- term, healthy, financially viable woodlot. In order for this to be achieved there needs to be a plan in place, before the trees are cut that focuses on removing the least valuable stems ( the weed trees) during the harvest ,while retaining the highest quality stems ( crop trees) - for future growth. Simultaneously, you as the landowner need to make the most amount of money possible during this process. We are not a Vermont timber harvesting or New Hampshire logging company – we are a fully licensed Forest Management Services company. There is a big difference! Stillwater Forestry LLC works directly for you ! We are the experts in the middle making sure that your interests are covered throughout the entire timber harvesting process.
- Single Tree Selection: A timber harvest that is essentially a thinning. We mark, with paint those trees that get cut and all others are left standing. We most commonly employ this method in un-even age hardwood stands – most commonly found on the parcels we manage in Vermont.
- Shelterwood: In this type of timber harvest we leave scattered large mature trees in the overstory while removing everything else. We utilize this harvest method in those forest stands where previous "highgrade" ( cut the best leave the rest) harvests took place. The mature trees left behind act as seed sources for future forest growth. We use this forest management method on some of the oak forested parcels in New Hampshire and "degraded" hardwood stands in Vermont.
- Patch Cuts: Small groups that are anywhere from 1/10 to 1/4 in size. These groups are spread across the parcel either evenly or randomly – depending on the forest type. All trees in the groups are harvested. We utilize this method on forested parcels where improved wildlife habitat ( particularly ruffed grouse/woodcock) is a client objective. This is also employed in mature, even age hardwood stands – commonly found on forest lands in Vermont.
