Wood Basket can increase your profits as a timberland owner by securing higher prices for your timber, lowering your operating costs, increasing timber production, and increasing sustainability.
Our proprietary system is built to give you an accurate assessment of the timber you own and its market value at any given moment. Our team of foresters and investors watch your timber asset as an investment, similar to the way a broker manages your financial investments. The timber market, like the stock market, has highs and lows. With the resources available to you through Wood Basket, you can make the right decisions at the right times, maximizing your profits.
Too many private landowners are undervaluing their timber and selling themselves short. We can put real-time, customizable data at your fingertips, telling you exactly what your timber was worth, showing you current market values and guiding you to informed, educated decisions about your timber. With Wood Basket, you can be confident about your decisions, secure in the knowledge that you’re selling the right wood to the right buyers at the right time.
Landowners with small properties are at a disadvantage in the timber market. They don’t have enough acreage to keep contractors busy, so they get charged more. They can’t sell in large enough quantities to command the highest prices from the mills. It’s inefficient and increases costs at every step of the process, which reduces profit margins.
Wood Basket uses the power of aggregation to put control back in the hands of small landowners. When small landowners join forces and negotiate in aggregate, they increase their efficiency and negotiating power. Approaching mills with higher quantities (through combining the harvests of several small landowners) allows landowners to demand higher prices and minimize costs.
The majority of timberlands in the southern region of the U.S. produce 2-4 tons per acre annually, well under their potential yields. With access to our system, you will have the opportunity to implement progressive forest management. Putting the right trees on the right land with the right preparation will yield 6-10 tons per acre annually on most sites.
The Wood Basket team has the scientific knowledge and experience to help you create a plan that will increase your growth rates and the quality of your timber through sustainable farming practices, nurturing your land to its highest potential and ensuring higher profits year after year.
