Land covered with forest that’s suitable or managed for timber is called timberland. Timber, by the way, is wood prepared for use in building and carpentry.
Have you ever thought of buying timberland property? Thanks to the Internet, it’s easier to find than it used to be.
When looking for timberland property to buy there are some questions to consider. For example, what kind of timber is on the property you’re interested in, and what’s it worth? How’s the site quality of the land? How young or old are the trees on the property– when will they be ready to use in order to make a profit? Also, is what the seller telling you reliable information or is it outdated? When’s the last time the property was surveyed? Does what’s actually there match the pictures you’ve seen online?
Timberland properties can be quite profitable for owners. It’s important, though, to do your research, have your questions answered, and know what you’re actually buying before you buy property.
