Landowners benefit from minimal-impact logging

LIMINGA - Logging your small land parcel has never been more comfortable to consider aesthetically pleasing.

Forest Care, LLC practices sustainable forestry on all of the lands it manages. It's a practice also known as low-impact logging and refers to harvesting trees with minimal impact on the environment.

Based in Liminga, Forest Care brings 27 years of experience to the industry and is highly educated in manufacturing grade cutting all species of trees to the highest potential of yield.

Forest Care stresses the importance of low-impact logging - harvesting trees that need to be harvested without damaging other residual trees - ensuring the long-term health and sustainability of the timberlands.

Forest Care is SFI (Sustainable Forestry Initiative) certified. In order to become SFI certified, Forest Care was required to take core classes under SFI.

One class being BMPs (best management practices), which help reduce the impact on Mother Nature.

Forest Care is directing its harvesting techniques of low-impact logging towards individuals who own five to 40 acres of land and still want to be able to walk their property. To have the thought of silviculture is aesthetically pleasing to landowners.

Forest Care doesn't hold back on harvesting large acreage but concentrates on the smaller acreage to execute low-impact logging.

Forest Care never rushes a job, instead, it places quality of work at the top of its list.

Forest Care addresses each tree singly with a chain saw utilizing directional felling techniques to reduce damage to the residual timber stand. Directional felling is a method of tree cutting that involves predetermining the way the tree will land when it hits the ground. Forest Care is careful to utilize all parts of the tree.

Forest Care operates two pieces of equipment on site: a forwarder and cable skidder. The forwarder is operated solely to create low-impact logging on less rough terrain. A cable skidder is used on rougher terrain only when needed. Julio Trucking hauls the load of wood off site for delivery.

Forest Care executes timber harvesting techniques only upon written contracts between Forest Care and the landowner. The contracts are the guidelines on how the operation is performed.
