contracts can be very tricky and should be handled by a
professional forester. Let Dwight Stewart & Associates help you
with your next timber sale. We require all loggers to follow South
Carolina's Best Management Practices (BMPs) and we will review each
bid and supervise the logging operation to make sure you get the
most from your timber in an ecologically sound manner. There are
also taxation issues to consider when harvesting timber. Dwight
Stewart and Associates can help you handle all aspects of your
timber sale including site preparation and replanting. We can
assist you in applying for a number of different cost share
programs available to landowners.
If you are in the market to buy some standing timber, view our
timber sales. Or, if you would like to purchase land with timber on
it, view our property listings.
If hunting or simply watching wildlife is the primary use for
your property, Dwight Stewart & Associates can write a forest
management plan that helps create areas for wildlife, be it quail,
turkey, deer, or even an endangered species. There are also
government programs that assist landowners who want to manage for
wildlife. Dwight Stewart & Associates will make sure that your
property takes advantage of any assistance available, including
Forest Stewardship and the Conservation Reserve Program (CRP).
Mapping & Geographic Information Systems (GIS)
Dwight Stewart & Associates uses the
latest technology in collecting GPS data in the field and creating
precise maps of your property for use in timber management. We also
use data from other sources to incorporate soils, hydrology,
topography, and aerial photos to formulate a complete GIS which
helps land managers make better decisions.
Taxation & Financial Planning
While making money on your timberland investments is important,
keeping that money is also important. We stay current on the ways
that income and estate taxes affect landowners. Along with your tax
advisor and legal professionals, we can be an important part of
your financial planning team.
