Timber Revenues Administration

IRM can help you manage all of the revenue and bills associated with your timber harvest by directing log payments to you, to the logger and any others involved in the harvest process as well as to provide you information and assistance in filing your timber taxes.

IRM can help you to determine who is the best capable and least costly logger to harvest your timber, and assist you in preparing a logging contract to protect your interest.  IRM continually stays up to date on current log market and is highly experienced in marketing timber to local log buyers to get you the best prices available for the wood you harvest.

There are numerous log buyers in the PNW; numerous species; and numerous sorts within a single species. It is quite common to sell 10 or more log sorts to 5 or more log buyers, so having professional help in determining which log buyers to sell your wood to – and which log sorts to sell to any specific buyer — can help you make thousands of dollars more from your forestland.
