As hurricane season is in full swing, our area will likely see unfortunate damage to timber resources. If your timber investment is damaged by a hurricane or other weather event, you may be able to claim the loss for tax purposes. Land & Timber Management, Inc. is qualified to assist you with a timber damage assessment and appraisal in the event that you suffer a loss. In addition, storm damage can often yield further timber stand degradation and damage due to bugs and fire hazard. Please contact us today - the sooner we can take a look at the damage, the more accurate we can be and the faster we can get the remainder of your stand protected. Call our office at 850-668-8333.
Here at LTM we often hear the excuse from older landowners that they don’t plan to reforest (that is, plant trees) on land they just harvested because “Why would I? I won’t live to see those trees mature.” After wishing them a long and healthy life, we like to give the following three reasons for why they should consider planting, even in the off-chance that they head for greener pastures before the trees can be harvested.
It’s tough to spend the money on reforestation knowing that you might not be around to see the trees mature. But we think the reasons above make a compelling case for why it’s a good idea for your pocket, your land, and your community.

Land & Timber Management does more than forestry work. We are a TOTAL LAND MANAGEMENT company dedicated to helping our clients meet ALL of their goals for their properties. To that end, we provide a list of services in a category we call "Forest Landscaping." These services are available for the landowner that wants to increase the aesthetic beauty, accessibility, usability, and wildlife potential of his or her property.
Sometimes Google imagery captures our work in progress. Here are a few cool images from the last couple years that give a unique perspective of what we do.
