Standing Timber Purchasing & Harvesting - Stoltzfus Forest Products

Turn Your Timber into a PayDay

Your Timber Is Too Valuable To Neglect

Healthy Forests

Forest management is an informed combination of science and art. It’s thinking long-term. It’s hitting the reset button on your woods and making them better than ever. It’s implementing great practices that will leave your landscape in a healthy position for future generations.

Wildlife Habitat

Animals thrive in a forest that is properly maintained. Turkey, smaller bird families, and whitetail deer love the edges of trails and openings where forage grows because of sufficient sunlight. Forest management creates those trails and openings. It’s a win-win for everyone, wildlife included.

Wood Products

Mulch, paper, firewood products, household furniture, DIY adventures, and construction material–all come from timber harvest. By choosing sustainable forestry for your land, you benefit financially while benefiting the wood industry. And that’s exciting!

Personal PayDay

The money you make selling quality trees may cover farm payments or other dream improvements to your property. We’ll send you a check for 100% of the agreed-upon sum before a single tree is cut. It’s as easy as that.

So Much Potential

Optimize your land value with a PayDay Harvest

Stoltzfus Forest Products ensures that your timber harvest is a win for you and the environment. Good forest management results in a clean environment, improved wildlife habitat, biological diversity, land improvement and preservation, and a refreshing place for recreation. 

Your trees play an essential role in providing renewable resources for many industries in this process. They arrive at our sawmill and are processed into premium lumber, destined to become beautiful wood products. Lower-grade logs and trimmings are turned into premium landscape mulch or firewood.

You are making a good choice as a steward of your land. A sustainable harvest will optimize the value of your timberland, keeping it healthy, vigorous, and diverse. Improve your land today, and play an essential role in making the world a better place.  We’re ready to walk beside you to that beautiful goal.

PayDay Today

As soon as we finish marking and you sign a contract, we’re committed! Though it might be a few months till the harvest, as soon as we are ready to begin, we’ll send you a check for 100% of the agreed-upon sum before any tree is cut. It’s as easy as that.

Targeted Cutting

Foresters use one of two methods for moderate forest harvest strategy: even age–the strategy of keeping most harvestable trees within a close age range, or uneven age–the strategy to layer canopies of different age trees for maximum wildlife diversity.

Sustainable Harvest

A sustainable harvest will optimize the value of your timberland, keeping it healthy, vigorous, and diverse. Sustainable forestry is about meeting today’s needs as well as tomorrow’s. Confidently decide on long-term health and happiness for your forest land and your financial benefit.

We Care About Forests. We Care About You.

You care about your land, and you care about your environment. That is why you should work with a local lumber mill that understands protecting your land during the timber harvest to keep your property from being devastated when you decide to sell your trees. If you live in Southeastern Pennsylvania or Northern Maryland, you will find it comforting to partner with Stoltzfus Forest Products foresters who have years of forest management experience. 

You can relax while one of our three professional foresters guides you through the “ins and outs” of a timber harvest. With over 100 combined years of experience under their belts, our foresters love what they do, and they do it well. Rest assured you’ll have a clear picture of important options and considerations so that you can make the best choices for yourself and the generation that follows you.

Professionalism, customer service, and your success are the focus of our entire Stoltzfus team from beginning to end. We look forward to working with you!

Good Forestry Matters

It may be tempting for landowners to choose short-term income at the expense of long-term value. Foresters and loggers who participate in a practice known as “high-grading” are one of the biggest challenges to long-term value. High-grading creams out all the best trees and leaves the low-quality trees. This not only is an easy money ploy for the harvesting crew, but it propagates a forest of low-quality wood for the future. 

Forests must be “weeded” just like a garden, taking lower-quality trees along with the higher quality trees is important for the health and value of the woodland. 

Stoltzfus has professional foresters with many years of experience in private forest management. With a company like Stoltzfus, you get the best of both worlds – top-notch forestry expertise with private company care and attention, and you don’t have to pay a commission for it! It is important to find a logger you can trust to treat the property like it is their own.

The success of your final outcome of a stewardship plan for your woods will depend on how well you’re able to identify and implement your goals and the support you’ll find along the way. Remember, choosing sustainable forestry means maximizing habitat value, increasing recreational value, and maximizing the periodic value of the forest products you have to offer to the world.

Choose Stoltzfus Forest Products to walk beside you in your forest management adventure. We’ll be with you every cut of the way.
