Prentiss & Carlisle took great care to understand and meet our forest management needs and to develop a customized plan for us — they don't have a one-size-fits-all approach at all. This was especially important because of the unique nature and high visibility of our property. P&C woodlot manager Tom Nelson always took time to explain what his crew was doing — and why — as people walked by on the trails. Even those with initial concerns now call to say the Woodlawn woods look great!

Anyone who owns a woodlot they want to keep healthy and self-sustaining should have the professional help Prentiss & Carlisle provides. They recommended the cut, directed the harvest — and even took care of marketing the wood. All we did was sit back and collect a check!

A forester by chance, I simply told Prentiss & Carlisle my goal to grow high quality white pine on my woodlot in Swanville, and they took
it from there. They understood immediately what I was trying to do. So when I decided on a stumpage sale, they brought out just the right trees and left just the right spacing — all while protecting a stream
that borders the property. Professional and responsive, P&C implemented my plan exactly as I had envisioned it.

When professionally managed, woodlots can be both beautiful and profitable, no matter what their size. That's why Prentiss & Carlisle offers the same team of professional foresters we provide for our long-established timberland clients — and the same cost-effective and comprehensive range of forest management services — to help woodlot owners meet a variety of objectives. Tom Nelson of Prentiss & Carlisle discusses a wood harvesting project performed at the Woodlawn Museum in Ellsworth, Maine. In the video Tom discusses the benefits of harvesting, including the overall health of the forest.
Whether you want to determine your land's value and potential rate of return; enhance its overall health, aesthetic qualities, and recreational opportunities; create access or improve wildlife habitats, Prentiss & Carlisle is ready to provide just the services you need to meet your goals.
We also provide marketing services for woodlot owners who want to harvest and sell timber, but who may feel uncertain as to its true value and uneasy about to how and where to sell it.
That means woodlot clients benefit not only from our many years of experience, expert advice, and harvest plans, but also from our marketplace expertise and product knowledge — and from our ability to combine timber from a variety of harvests and direct market it in volume. Because we bring hundreds of thousands of cords of wood to market each year, we provide our woodlot clients with the marketplace clout of large timberland owners — and with the ability to increase the cash portion of their return.
