Friday, March 9, 2018- Timber Industry Tour
"Friday we had the pleasure of hosting Evergreen Building Products Association's US-China Inbound Mission tour group in conjunction with Southern Forest Products Association .
A group of lumber importers and re-manufacturers from China had the opportunity to see the timber harvesting and silvicultural management side of the forest industry.
During the tour, we visited sites that were being actively harvested by clearcut and selective cut harvest practices. We also visited sites that were in different stages of timber management rotations such as recently thinned, non thinned, a 18 year old longleaf plantation being managed not only for timber use but that is also being harvest for pinestraw, tracts that were in the process of being prepared to be replanted next year and a site that was being hand planted today. Not only did our group get to watch the planting but actually got to participate and plant some trees on there own.
Our owner and procurement forester, Ben Spears, led the discussion using his 30+ years of experience as a consultant and a wood buyer to explain and show how and why timber production is Georgia’s most valuable renewable resource.
The tour ended with a good homecooked meal from Bevricks Char-House Grille in Metter.
H & H Timber, LLC is proud of the work we do and proud to share it with not only our community but with others around the world.
Thank you to our wood producer Randy Jones and the Jones Timber crew for allowing our guests to watch your work and ask questions about the logging process. We would also like to thank the Metter-Candler Chamber of Commerce and Victoria Gaitten for taking time out of her busy schedule to participate in the tour and gain knowledge on one Georgia’s major agricultural industries that directly affects our community." - H&H Timber, LLC
