The Golden Voice - Change Takes Time

Jan. 6, 2016  • 

One thing we always are reminded of as foresters, especially forest management foresters, is how long it takes for things to happen. We are used to it, but most people are not.  Tell a sixty year old inexperienced landowner that the trees you just planted for him will be ready for a commercial thinning in fifty years and you will get the response, "You mean I won't get any return on this investment until I'm 110 years old?" The time needed to grow a tree crop , especially on a small ownership, is a challenge to getting a property managed.
