Using our proprietary knowledge and expertise, Woodmetrics™ ensures maximum value is achieved by selecting the most appropriate sale method.

  • Method of sale:
    - Lump Sum - an agreed value, pre-harvest.
    - Pay-as-cut (per tonne basis).
    - Pay-as-cut (log grade basis).
  • Timing it right
