Depending on where you are located, there may be small scale operations that do quality work. Sometimes jobs can be done with horses or smaller scale equipment that doesn't leave such an inpact on the land. We logged our 60 acres a while back with a conventional operation, and they did a fairly decent job. This was because there was a contract. THis is extremely important, as everything is spelled out, and there is no misunderstanding or grey areas. As the other person said, contact the state or fed forester in your area. However, even they can be misleading as to what the worth may be, as they are often times geared up fro clearcut sales on a very large scale. Someone in our area selectively harvested a oak forest, and the number between what was taken and what the forester thought wouold come out were so far off the mark it was unbelieveable. Don't Forget the Contract!!
