 VALUE OPTIMISATION

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
    Not being a log trader, Woodmetrics™ is free to advise you on the best time to sell. We take into account international, regional, resource type and owner specific factors.

MARKETING

Our professional sales and marketing service starts here.

  • Stumpage prospectus
    Containing information designed to reduce purchaser risk and secure the best possible price for your wood.
