Timber Improvement

When it comes to forestry, the certified arborists and expert staff at Arthur Ratliff Tree & Stump Removal use timber improvement to optimize wooded areas for longevity and aesthetic appeal. Through timber improvement, we selectively determine which trees should remain, which should flourish, and which should be removed in order to provide the healthiest and most beautiful landscape.
Whatever your timber improvement needs are, allow our professionals and certified arborists to help you enhance your woodlands.

Are there any other benefits of timber improvements?
Yes. Not only does timber improvement augment the health and beauty of your trees, it can also add significant value to your wooded property. By selectively determining your most desirable trees, we develop and execute a plan to give you a luscious wooded landscape, which in turn increases the value of your property over time.

Additionally, timber improvement typically involves planning for a more biodiverse tree population in order to create the richest wooded area. Over time, this biodiversity may attract new wildlife.


Is timber improvement always necessary?
In short, no. Timber improvement is not necessary for every situation. However, timber improvement is one of the best investments you can make if you live in a heavily wooded area. If you let thick woods grow on their own, natural thinning would only occur as trees die, but that could take many decades. Instead, removing low quality trees and planting high quality ones can allow new seedlings to take form on the ground immediately.
