Whatever your objective, our foresters are here to help. Through years of forestry consulting and sustainable forest management practices, our foresters can help determine what’s best for your tree lot.
Our philosophy is that “it all begins in the woods” which is why we employ over 20 qualified foresters on our staff whose collective experience is greater than 250 years. These experienced professionals manage our company’s timberlands and assist other forest landowners in maximizing their long term returns through professional forest management. We understand how to protect forest health, encourage growth, and enhance future value through sustainable selective harvesting. We know that land is more than just the trees, the timber is part of a larger ecosystem that includes the wildlife, clean water, and fresh air which is why they deserve professional care Gutchess Lumber can provide.
Many people ask: “How can I sell my timber?”. We buy standing timber consistent with landowner’s needs and desires and offer competitive pricing with upfront payment before harvesting. To meet the needs of our clients, we offer assessment services for both private landowners and large corporations. Our experts will evaluate your property to find the best way to manage it to maximize its potential.
We purchase forest lands which we manage with our licensed foresters, so it produces sustainable timber yields year after year.

“I must take this opportunity to commend Gutchess Lumber Company on the quality people you have on staff. This is the third sale I’ve had completed with your company and each one gets better- the crew did a superb job every step of the way. Kyle personally did the remediation work and I must say is a magician with a dozer. He made the four parties involved very pleased and happy. That makes me happy. Again a tip of the hat to the job well done from a company that I would expect no less from. I hope we may continue doing business in the future. Working with people like you have at Gutchess makes my job quite enjoyable.”
