FORESTRY PLANNING, TIMBER SALVAGE

& SILVICULTURE

CCI provides the services of Forestry Professionals. Before any linear project can move forward in a forested area a timber salvage plan is developed.. This would include, but is not limited to, the identification of the timber type, volume,   a harvesting and hauling plan, and negotiations with the end user. These are all vital components to the project. The forestry planning / GIS professionals devise a very detailed plan that allows the client to stay within the guidelines to reduce the environmental footprint, maximize production efficiency, complete clearing safety and reduce costs through intense planning. Our forestry personnel are the most experienced and qualified people in the industry and continue to provide a service that is second to none. These professionals help control the establishment, growth, composition, health, and quality of the forests to meet diverse needs and values for a multitude of industries.
