Buying Timber Land (IL)

[Post a Follow Up] [Post to this category]
From: Cindy Vandygriff

We are looking at some land that is all timber but we would like to know what the timber is worth before we make an offer. How should we go about this? We also would like to know what are options are for either programs or selective logging. We have not a clue where to start. Any help would be great. Thanks
