Questions for a prospective logger:
Does your operation have a waste wood/ biomass market – what will happen to the brush?
Do you have references from foresters and other landowners?
What other services can you provide, for example, I want two of the trails stumped, a food plot, etc.?
Can you provide proof of all insurances, trucking, liability, comp. etc.?
How is the wood being tracked and accounted for once it leaves my land?
What training have you and your employees completed?
Will you have a written contract that includes my expectations of what the roads, trails and landing will look like after the harvest?
If you choose a Master Logger you can be assured that they will have good answers to all of these questions!
