Land and Timber – Purchasing and Management
Good Hope, Inc. provides land and timber purchasing and management services.
We're a buyer of all standing timber and forest products. Our products are delivered to mills throughout Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi. With an annual capacity of approximately 3 million tons, we are a high volume producer of sawtimber and pulpwood for most mills within our region.
Our forestry team is experienced in managing all types of land and timber projects. Regionally, we are the number one volume producers of hardwood and pine. We pay top dollar for standing timber, with a wide variety of options for the landowner.
Pine and Hardwood Plantation Thinning
Pine and Hardwood plantation thinning promotes the overall growth and health of the forest, captures the financial value of merchantable timber and encourages diversity in wildlife habitats.
Good Hope has logging contractors with many years of experience to achieve your goals. Whether it is a pine stand in higher elevations or hardwood plantation in the Mississippi River Delta Basin, Good Hope has the capabilities to meet your needs.
Good Hope has experience in working with economic development contractors to harvest timber on future development sights. This is done by either cutting every tree with a certain sized stump, or marking specific trees to be cut with paint.
Island and Barging Services
Our island and barging services help landowners generate revenue from timber in areas that are difficult to get to. This service entails harvesting the wood, hauling it to a main yard, then moving it to the mills with contract trucks.
By using barges to transport timber from areas such as islands or areas cut off by sloughs and rivers, we can reach even the most difficult timber. Our sister company, Cottonport Hardwoods, LLC, has extensive barge harvesting operations along the Mississippi River counties!
In Woods Chipping
Good Hope has the ability to set up or contract crews to do in woods or on-site chipping. Furthermore, we have the ability to screen chips to meet certain specifications for the thriving wood pellet and mulch industries. Whatever type or specific size is needed, we can get the job done.
Mill and Woodyard Cleanup
Mill and woodyard cleanup is one of our newest services here at Good Hope. We have the ability to screen waste piles and remove metal and foreign objects so the residuals can be used as fuel or chips. Good Hope can mobilize to any site and be fully functional within a few days, helping to accomplish your goals of maintaining a clean and safe mill or yard.
Good Hope has access to remote woodyards to store your timber, whether you're looking for short or long-term storage. We also have watering systems available to preserve wood for future use. This allows us to consolidate trucking costs and reduce freight prices to keep costs more predictable.
