Bricker Lumber Company is proud to provide timber harvesting for landowners within a 60-mile radius of our mill in Chambersburg, Pennsylvania. We strive to manage our forests and environment wisely for future generations to enjoy. We use fully mechanized equipment and the best forestry techniques available.
We buy standing timber of all species. Our premise is simple: make sound decisions to provide wood products our economy needs and protect the environment and health of our forests for future generations.
Trees are a renewable resource and reforestation is a sustainable process that takes place naturally. We harvest timber, which helps you manage your woodland.
Nearly every forest in our surrounding area has been harvested in the past – most several times and yet maintaining their forested condition. As older trees are removed, the openings in the forest cause soil disturbance and increase sunlight. This assists in seed germination and stimulated new growth as young, healthy trees thrive.
Trees are directionally felled using chain saws and wedges, with stumps cut low to the ground.
Each tree is skidded from the woods to a log loading area and then cut, loaded on a triaxle truck, and hauled to the mill.
Some tracts require site work for the haul roads, loading areas, or stream crossings – all done with planning and care.
We work with private landowners within a 60-mile radius of our mill in Franklin County, Pennsylvania.
We have earned our reputation over many years – and have the successful track record to prove it.
Our experience can be a resource for you as you manage your property, obtaining enjoyment, benefits, income, and satisfaction from your woodland.
With our trusted experience with timber, we are transparent and honest about the factors that we consider when offering a price for your timber. These factors are often.
