We love to use Norway Spruces for these types of projects because it is highly adaptable to many soil types and drainages. Often we space tree rows at least 10-feet apart and each individual tree is separated 8-feet from the other. Per acre, this equates to around 500 trees. We can of course adjust this to your planting objectives too.

Future Forest Consulting, Inc.’s expertise in this is extensive because we are experienced “hands-on” Forest Managers.

Many farmers are adjusting their view on Forest Management with regard to enhancing the productivity and value of their total land use. Future Forest Consulting, Inc., essentially can act as an investment adviser providing investment management services for these institutional investors in timberland. We manage timberland portfolios for corporate pension plans, not for profit organizations and retirement systems.

The financial outlook for timberland investors is very positive.  Product supplies are decreasing and demand is increasing, so prices are expected to continue to soar.. Higher demand for timber results from an expanding global market for wood products and a shifting emphasis to renewable resources. Increasing global demand for forest products is expected to continue, due to worldwide demographic trends and other factors.

Astute timber sale decision-making is one of our most important services, since income from asset sales is a large component portfolio return. We currently manage over 25,000 acres of timberland.

Management Plans/480a for Wellsville Forest Areas

Future Forest Consulting develops management plans for forest areas designed to optimize productivity in conjunction with a landowner’s objectives. The management plan is the first step towards responsible forest stewardship. The plan serves like an owner’s manual for a property and includes a work schedule to maintain the quality and health of the forest. These plans will likely cover; objectives, existing access and recommendations, boundary lines, forest health, wildlife habitat, fisheries habitat, recreation, unique flora and fauna and recommendations regarding forestry and wildlife for each individual area. 

Management plans qualify landowners to receive EQIP, Tree Farm status, and 480 Real Tax Law abatements in some cases. The 480-a Real Property Tax Law provides landowners compensation for managing their land with sustainable practices for timber, wildlife, aesthetics, and recreation. The Forest Tax Law can significantly reduce your annual assessment to 20% of the current value. When the timber is sold, a 6% sales tax is paid for the wood harvested. 

Contact Future Forest Consulting Inc. to see if your land may qualify for these financial incentives and how it can be financially maximized whilst preserving sustainability.

Low Impact Logging in Wellsville NY

Timber Stand Improvement

Timber Stand Improvement provides an excellent platform to enhance limited forest resources into establishing regeneration of intolerant species. These are flora and fauna that are less ‘tolerant’ to the shading of the canopy. Releasing intolerant species such as Cherry, Ash and Oak ensures these valuable species will eventually become a predominant part of the mature stand. Managers should focus on intolerant species because the intolerant species are more susceptible to mortality through competition and over-shading. Intolerant species grow up to 2-3 times as fast than shade tolerants, yielding greater harvest frequencies.

Let Future Forest Consulting Inc. help you understand what needs to be done to increase your land’s TSi and some strategies to make it a success anywhere around the Wellsville, NY area.
