Ask if your prospective forester is a member of the Association of
Consulting Foresters.   How much experience does the forester have in
selling timber, how much is local to the area where your land is located.
How will the forester mark and sell the sale, lump sum or by the thousand
board feet. How does the forester determine who will be invited to make
offers on your timber. Are you looking for the best price, best logging
job, combination of both... Forester should ask why you are selling timber
and what other goals you may have for the property.
