We are committed to sustainable forestry at East Ohio Lumber. Our timber properties are on a ten to twenty year harvest cycle. The goal is to have various generations of trees growing throughout the forest.
Trees are harvested when they are ready, opening the forest canopy and allowing sunlight to reach the forest floor. This will allow nearby saplings to grow and new growth to sprout in its place.
This method is good for the long-term investment of the forest, growing large straight trees in order to harvest high-quality lumber. This is also important for wildlife, as it provides a diverse ecosystem throughout the forest.
