Event Date(s)
Greene County Extension Office (Carrollton)


Illinois woodland owners have sold over $250 million worth of timber over the last decade.  Truth be told, that financial figure should be much, much higher.  The bad news:  Illinois woodland owners are underselling their timber by millions of dollars every year!

Extension State Forester Jay Hayek will specifically discuss how to market your timber, how to properly conduct a timber sale, how to involve a professional forester, and how to guarantee you more income and more timber sales over your land ownership tenure!

Timber is an investment and it must be treated as part of your financial portfolio.  If you’re a woodland owner, then you need to attend this workshop!

Registration is required, and seating is limited!  Cost is $10 per person, or $5.00 for Extension Master Gardeners or Master Naturalists. Registration deadline is February 14, 2020.
