Forester/Logger recommendations

Recommended Posts

I am looking to have a forester/logger come out and take a look at our new place to give me an idea of what can and should be taken out of our property. Do any of you have recommendations on a good person/company to use?

I have used future forest consulting a few times on different properties. He does a good job and will let you know what should be done.

Another happy customer of future forest consulting.  Corey did a great job with the logging project we completed a couple of years ago.

all the connections you've got and you need recommendations for that??? lol

I dont have many connections for loggers actually. More land management or property evaluation people that are more hunting focused, but thats not really what Im looking for. I have a pretty good idea of what Im going to be trying to accomplish in that respect. Its always good to look outside of your own circle sometimes.

Corey has done work for my buddy in Canadice a couple times, always been satisfied. 

Now that I think of it he logged my Uncle's place a few years ago, straight up the mountain from his own house. 

My friend has known his family for many years.  Good people.....

If you want top dollar and if you have some popl or sycamore etc which loggers usually won't take, the Amish can be a good option. I'm not a fan of how they operate but they can get you the most money compared to others. If you don't need top dollar for timber and want a more "professional" job, look elsewhere !

I had a timber company approach me a couple of years ago about logging a part of my property.  I decided to call FORECON located in Cortland, NY.  (They advertise in NY Outdoor News). They came out and did a survey of the timber, solicited several bids, and handled all the contracting, insurance, etc.  I’m glad I did because i got quite a bit more than the timber company was offering.   I’m not sure if they go out to WNY but it might be worth a call.

Yeah Corey at future Forrest is great. He did our pond, he also does clearing for food plots. He is doing our logging and I'm having him clear out a spot for a food plot out of the profit.

Loggers typically leave your property like an ex does your checkbook.


Because of you we can’t have nice things.

Over used several different logger and foresters.. ibrecomend you go with a foresters and tell them your looking for wildlife not timber. Makes a big difference in how it's marked and harvested


I've hunted almost everyday of my life.. the rest have been wasted!

I will have to check with my oldest son . He had his 16 acres logged . I think he dealt with the forestry dept and paid them something like 15% and the forestry dept over saw the work . The loggers wanted to take out some big oaks and my son said no way that the trees were more valuable than money . 

Just made a call . My son contracted through Future Forestry out of Naples , NY . They went through different logging outfits , got bids and determined who would do the work and over saw the work that was done . You could go through different loggers and do all this yourself if you want to take the time and keep an eye on their work . Future Forestry made sure there was some cleanup done and that the trails were cleared / repaired ( if necessary ) .

Some of the loggers prefer to do the work by areas so they aren't moving their equipment  all over which is cost effective for them . Future Forestry might have some insight on that .

One thing you might wanna do is let your neighbors know that your going to have a select harvest. They might decide to have theirs done too and could yield you a higher price because they can pull out more timber for the job.

I agree and disagree.

In the beginning I didn't know what I didn't know.

Now I have learned, in my contract it is the responsibility of the logger to repair roads, and also make a particular size food Plat after they finished logging or it is a no go.

Additionally, they can not remove heavy equipment until i am satisfied with their results.

No problems for the last 10 years. The abilities of an experienced forester and a forester that also has your needs in mind is priceless.
