Improve your Recreational Property without hurting Timber Potential

Making improvements to your recreational property can attract more quality wildlife, for sure. But it’s important that you don’t negatively impact a property’s potential timber returns in the process.

Rob Haubry, an Indiana-based broker and forestry consultant, offers a good overview of ways to think about balancing these two objectives in two videos on the WhitetailProperties.com website.

The first video offers general tips for making improvements to a hunting property while maximizing future timber returns. In the second video, Haubry talks about how he made specific plans for each section of his own 65-acre property, leaving timber in some areas while doing hinge-cutting and selective clearing in areas where the timber didn’t offer good opportunities for investment returns.

The main point: No matter the size of your property, there are ways to attract wildlife while also keeping future timber harvests in mind.

The recreational property experts in the PotlatchDeltic Preferred Broker Network are highly experienced in helping buyers find properties that will work both for hunting and for timber investment.  It’s important to work with a broker who specializes in recreational property, with a deep understanding of timber, terrain, wildlife and other factors that go into a property purchase.
