Tree Harvesting in Illinois by Forest Forever, LLC
Forest Forever, LLC provides a variety of tree harvesting services in Illinois. We are equipped to handle the maintenance of the state’s tree species, which include the Slippery Elm, Chestnut Oak, Shagbark Hickory, and countless others. Forest Forever, LLC begins the tree harvesting process with a survey of the property area, which helps us determine a plan for our services that meets the goals of the client and suits the area. We are knowledgeable about the marketability of different types of timber and can determine the most profitable types. Walnut, Oak, Maple and Cherry are the preferred types of veneer/hardwood trees for purchase.
From handheld chainsaws to large harvesting machines, our foresters adapt the equipment used for each job. Sensitivity to environmental needs is important and Forest Forever, LLC always keeps that in mind. After the tree removal part of our forest management is finished, we use a skidder to transport timber to a designated log yard. To avoid disruption of the land not involved in the tree harvesting as much as possible, it’s important to change the drag angle often when hauling.
