Proper handling of the sale of standing timber requires a combination of technical forestry, logging engineering, economics, law, and horse sense. Too often beautifully-written legal documents fail to achieve the forester's purposes, or contracts which are meant to result in excellent forestry are found to be unenforceable. Recognizing the importance of the attorney's role, the author discusses this vital topic from the viewpoint of a forester administering sales and attempting to use the tools of the law for proper control and direction of cutting.
