What to include in a logging contract

Asked November 7, 2013, 10:30 AM EST

A registered forester marked 22 trees for logging on our property. He works for a hardwood mill. Can you suggest some important details I should include in the contract with the loggers?

Greetings,
Thank you for asking about important elements of a timber sale contract. Ohio State Exension has a link that describes what should be included: http://ohioline.osu.edu/for-fact/0038.html . I can also send you a .pdf from Michigan State University Extension that describes what a sample contract should include. I can't attach it to this response, however. If you would like an electronic copy of this bulletin, please contact me with your email address to petersog@msu.edu. Best of luck in your sale!
